Hiding issue fields based on user role

We have added a custom field for Developer Notes, but don't want this to be visible to anyone other than staff with the Developer role. How can we do this ?

This widget could not be displayed.

Jira doesn't have field level security.

You can try to do it with a bit of javascript for yourself, but have a look at the field security plugin from quisapps or the behavours plugin.

if you want to do with javascript then you can try with following script

<script type="text/javascript">  
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
	JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {	
		hideFieldForGroup();    
	});
	hideFieldForGroup();
function hideFieldForGroup(){
        var user=getCurrentUserName();		
		var statusText=$('#status-val').text();	
		var status=$.trim(statusText);
		if(isUserInGroup(user,'Developers') && status=='In Progress'){			
			$("#customfield_10571").closest('div.field-group').hide();
		}else if(isUserInGroup(user,'Users') && status=='Open') {
			AJS.$("#customfield_10571").closest('div.field-group').show();
		}

}
function getCurrentUserName()
{
var user;
     AJS.$.ajax({
        url: "/rest/gadget/1.0/currentUser",
        type: 'get',
        dataType: 'json',
        async: false,
        success: function(data) {
            user = data.username;
        }
     });
     return user;
}
  
  
function getGroups(user)
{
var groups;
     AJS.$.ajax({
        url: "/rest/api/2/user?username="+user+"&expand=groups",
        type: 'get',
        dataType: 'json',
        async: false,
        success: function(data) {
            groups = data.groups.items;
        }
     });
     return groups;
}
function isUserInGroup(user, group){
    var groups = getGroups(user);
    for (i = 0; i < groups.length; i++){
         if (groups[i].name == group){
              return true;
         }
    }
    return false;
}
   
});   
 

</script>
