How can I hide Assign button & Assign to Me AND allow assignment via post function?

I have a workflow that has assignment set by workflow post function and I need to prevent people from assigning issues to themselves or to anyone else. 

I can't take the assignment permission away from them since I do need them to be able to assign via the post function.

Hi Robert,

I believe it can be gobally disabled by following this KB Article, but you need to disable the Ops Bar Assign Link (assign-issue) module instead.


This can't be done on a project basis, can it?

Sorry, the above procedure affects the whole instance.
There is no way to do the same per project basis.

Did you mind to add the Jira.permission.assign.denied= property to an status and see if the button is not displayed but the postfunction works as it should?

See, the article below if you don't know how to configure transition and status properties:
