How can I hide fields from users?


Whilst configuring JIRA OnDemand and coming across many limitations and having to put in some less than desirable workarounds, it now also looks like I cannot hide fields from users. Is this correct?

You can give a different level of access using permission schemes to project roles and users and you can use different field configurations per project.  But I do not know of a way of hiding a single field to a single user.

Hello Christian,

You can make fields hidden or visible even in JIRA Cloud (formally JIRA OnDemand). Hiding or showing a field section of the page tells you how to.

JIRA is intended as a collaboration tool, and hiding fields from users runs absolutely counter to the principle of openness that a team needs when its members are working together.  So no, there is no way to hide fields from users.  A field either exists and is available to all, or it does not exist for the issue/project.

If you were on the server version, there is an add-on which will enable this function, but you can't use it on Cloud.
