is there an easy way to hide some tabs in the activity section of an issue?

We want to hide the "Source" and the "Reviews" tab. For the "Source" tab I revoked the permission to anyone for the "View Development Tools". I have tested this and I got back the expected message: "No one currently has the 'View Development Tools' permission."

But I still see the "Source" tab sad

Has anyone an idea?

What is View Development Tools?  Is that a field? Tabs are just a logical way to organize fields on a screen. All the tabs count as the same screen.  You may not be able to hid it.

This I mean ...



I have access to a Jira installation v5 and there aren´t this tabs visible. But I don´t have anybody there to ask how they did this sad

No one has an idea or this impossible to hide this tabs?

I don't believe it is possible unless you go in and modify the base code. Tabs are just a logical division of the screen. If you somehow hide all the fields on the tab the tab may not appear. There may be a plugin allowing you to hide the fields. If I have fields I want to restrict access to I put them on a transition with conditions that only allow the right people to execute.

I found a way to hide both tabs ... I just disabled the "FishEye Plugin", it´s a System add-on.

It was so easy smile
