Hi Mohin,

do you want only hide Issue types from this drop-down list or also disable(block) creation of Issues with this hidden Issue types?

Hi Michal,

I want to only hide Issue types from drop down list.

Thanks

So in some of your projects user will not be able to create Issues with hidden types, that means, that in these projects you don't want have Issues with these hidden types? Because if yes, then you can use different "Issue type schemes" for different projects..

But if you want have Issues with these hidden types in project and they will be hidden only in drop-down list, I don't know if this is possible.

as @Michal suggested if don't want have issues with hidden issuetypes then create new issuetype scheme

still you want hide issue types using javascript try with following code

<script type="text/javascript">
 $(document).ready(function() {	
	$("#issuetype option").each(function()	{
   if( $(this).text() == 'issuetype name' || $(this).text() == 'issuetypename' ){
    $(this).remove();
		}
	});
  
});  
</script>

Your JS does not work for me in 5.x version.

try with this

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
	JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function(e,context) {
		$("#issuetype option").each(function()  {
   if( $(this).text() == 'issuetype name' || $(this).text() == 'issuetypename' ){
    $(this).remove();
        }
    });
	});
});
</script>

i suggest you to add js code as webresource, check the following post
