How can I hide certain fields for particular users / user groups?


we would like to hide certain customer fields from certain users / user-groups.
The idea is that , for example, our developers see only the fields they need to work with, and that our customers can't see certain fields (e.g fixed price).

Is there any solution for jira-cloud? We found field-level-security addons but they are only available for jira-server.

thank you :)

Hi Inas,

field level security is not possible with Jira out of the box. There is a Jira issue for that:

but it is closed as "Won't fix".

I don't know a solution for Jira Cloud.




Possible in SERVER version, if you have Script Runner plugin installed. Using script runners 'Behaviours' module, you can achieve this to some extend. 


Thank you for your answer, but we use the cloud version
