Hide Fields for Project Role Users


Is it possible to hide a field for Project Role Users and make the same field visible for the Project Role Administrators in JIRA Cloud.

Thanks in Advance!

No.  JIRA doesn't have any form of field-level security in it.

There are a couple of tricks you can play if you have Server versions of JIRA, including one add-on that is explicitly for it which works really well, but there's no options for it on Cloud.

Thanks for your response Nic, If there is no option to hide a field is there a possibility to make it read only.

Remove the field from the "edit" screen and it will become read-only (leave it on the "view" screen of course). 

That blocks all edits though, so you might want to consider having it on transition screen and having transitions that then use conditions to only allow certain users to perform them.

I'm with Nic on putting the field on a protected transition going back to the same status. Depending on the use, you may need to put it on more than one status
