Hide Password field in JIRA User Signup form


Currently our JIRA instance has SSO enabled and user credentials are being maintained by an ADFS directory. 

If we enable user signup form, is there any possibility that we could hide/remove the password field from the form? Or make it non mandatory as password is being managed through ADFS?

If you remove below option from the file <JIRA-install>/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/com/atlassian/jira/web/action/JiraWebActionSuppor



That should work. You need restart jira. 


This guide will help you.



Guide explains disabling "can't login to Jira" option. However procedure should be the same.

I think you are looking at it the wrong way.

Instead of tweaking your instance (which you`ll have to do after every upgrade) you should look into default group memberships or group claims from your IDP (AD FS).

That way users are added to a group upon login, and there is no need for signup.
