Hide Work Log for a Group?


Can I hide worklog enteries for a particular group. They should not be able to add worklog or view it.

I don't think so. Anyone with the Browse Project permission can view an issue's time tracking information (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Logging+Work+on+an+Issue).

You can control, who can log work on an issue via the project permissions (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Project+Permissions) , but everyone who is able to look at the issue can see the already logged work too.



Just to add to Thomas' answer, you could probably hide the Worklog information using javascript hack in the Announcement banner for people belonging to a group (not sure whether the user group information is available at the client side in a view issue screen).

Or with a bit of velocity code in the description part of one of the custom fields. See this post in earlier forums for a similar case
