Hi Iowa,

You might want to check in your Project Permissions for the 'View Issue Source Tab' permission, which allows users to view source commits for an issue. If the users don't have that permission, they shouldn't be able to view it.

Probably you can check the module for the plugin to find a module used for the commits tab in the Issue view page. As for the DVCS plugin, you might find the workaround in https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-34987 helpful

Hi probably a custom plugin will help but I'm not sure if there exist one for that.

@Zulfadli, i didnt know that the commits tab popped up from DVCS plugin. Since its a free plugin, i will look to tinker with the code, to disable the commits tab.

Thank you all for helping me out. Really glad. :)
