You can't do it in configuration, you will need to amend some code to hide the links you don't want from specific groups/users etc

You might be able to do it in Javascript, but people can bypass that if they want. That's the closest you'll get to a none-coding workaround.

Hi Nic,

Thanks for your quick response.

Can you please suggest me what kind of code I can use?

I tried using javascript... But I am not able to get the Link PopUp Window to hide those link types using javascript.

Thanks & Regards,


Hi All,

Please suggest me some javascripts for this.

I have used following java script it is not working.

<script type="text/javascript">
  AJS.$(document).ready(function() {
    AJS.$("#issue-link-link-type option[value*='clones']").remove();

Thanks & Regards,


Can anyone please tell me how can I get popup Link screen in the java script. so that I can remove options from the select list?

You have to do it in the steps. First you need to add a handler in the doc.ready to add a handler for the div show/hide. Inside that handler you should try to remove the options from the dropdown.

I guess so.

Hi Renjith,

Thanks for your reply.

I got one javascript to hide such options from the select list.

Can you share your script? Thanks
