Display field by project role


I have a text type custom field. I want to display this field only to one project role/group but not to others.

I know out of box jira does not allow me to do this.

Is there any plugins? any workarounds to do this?

You could try something with javascript, but it won't be effective - the field will be visible in all sorts of places, including the raw HTML of the issue view.

The standard workaround recommended is the Quisapps Field Security addon.  This can hide fields quite effectively (although users will still know that the field is there)

The other option is to write a field based on the type you want to hide and implement code that hides it before it is rendered.
