Hide "Admin" button?


Just finished a Jira upgrade from 6.0.3 to 6.1.7. There's a great new "Admin" button on the view issue page. What is the most painless way to remove this button?

Hi Bryan,

A quick fix for the problem while the New Feature request approved and added would be adding a custom css. You can include the css as external file in the announcement banner.

You can add a custom css to hide the button as shown below:-


Hi Bryan,

this button is visible only to Administators. Regular users does not see it.

Hi Bryan,

Unfortunately there is no easy way to remove this button. I am guessing that there might be module resposible for that button in the Systems Plugins. You can probably playaround with JS code also and hide it. Good thing is that you are not the only person that see this confusing and want to remove it from the screen.

There is a New Feture request created:


Please vote and add yourself as a watcher in order to be informed about the progress on this ticket. Every vote counts. Maybe in the feature realease it will be implemented and there will be a easy way from the UI to remove this button.

I hope that will help.

Best Regards,


Thanks, All! Those are great clues. New feature voted for. CSS implemented.
