How to disable/hide "Create Kanban Board" option in JIRA Agile?

The current out of box JIRA Agile is not able to restrict user to create a specific type of board.

Thank you,

Hi Datta,

By default we cannot disable the Kanban action. But if your target is to avoid users of seeing this option, maybe you should create a Java Script to hide it.

The Java Script can be placed on the Announcement Banner and to create it is important to use firebug or chrome inspector to see the elements that you want to hide.

This will not avoid the user to create a kanban by using the URL for this action, but if the idea is to avoid them to create it by mistake, it can be a workaround.

Hi Bruna,

Thanks for your suggestion.

I have simply added below code to Annoncement Banner and worked like magic. :)

<style type="text/css">
#ghx-wizard-methodology-kanban { display: none; }
 #ghx-wizard-methodology-kanban-sample { display: none; }
</style>

Thank you,

Datta Borude

I'm not sure there is a question here - you've stated how Jira Agile works. Is there a question?

s it possible to turn off the Kanban board feature in JIRA? We don’t want people starting Kanban. It’s not an approved lifecycle model in our organization.

Reference: JSP-197462

We can't see your support issues, we're end users

I think you can shut Kanban off completely, but I have not tested this in anger - go to manage addons, find Jira agile, open it up and disable the two modules with Kanban in their name.

This kills it completely - none of your users will have access.
