How can we disable the new Admin->Add field in JIRA 6.1 ?
We have given admin access to some of the project leads. Since it's very easy to create the field now they are all trying it ;-) The concern here is fields are created in Global contexts and getting added to shared screens, so it's impacting other projects.
Thanks in advance!
AFAIK "Add new field" is the default permissions to the adimins so we can't change this. But you can do one thing tell to the project leads if add any new fields then need to configure to that particular project only and issue types then it will not effect the other projects.
Hope this helps you,
You can't disable it.
There's a general piece of advice on admin here - never give it out to project leads and other users. You should have a small handful of administrators (at least two, never more than ten, and ten is when your Jira install is huge)
I would remove this access from them as soon as possible. Every Atlassian job I've had has started with being hired to sort out the mess made by too many admins.
(Atlassian are looking at more granular admin access levels, but I don't know exactly when to expect an improvement)
