How to disable the option to export from Issue Navigator ALL fields

Peter Bengov Community Champion Nov 29, 2017

I can't find an option to remove from my users the ability to export CSV (All field). 

There was an option to do this in the past for the Excel files, by disabling one of the modules of one of the System plugins.

You can add a snippet of Javascript in your announcement banner. In my case I've used:


Please note that the selector might need to be tweaked depending on your Jira version as the DOM elements are changed over versions.

Please let me know if it worked for you!

Thanks, Micky. I will give this a try though I prefer using a more OOTB solution if they Atlassian still have it

Hi Peter,

I've actually found a very easy solution which I've deployed on my production instance: you can get to the Plugin Manager and browse System plugins, looking for "Issue Views Plugin", then click on "16 modules enabled" and you can disable any module which you don't want to use anymore:


Hope this helps!

Hi Micky, your second solution was exactly what I've been looking for.

Thank you

Glad it helped!


Hi Micky ,

this is really the easiest solution , but for some reasone it does not work for me ....  

I see the same thing as on your image , but cannot change anything ....

On "mouse-over" there is a meessage for every module : Module cannot be modified...

Am I doing something wrong or Atlassian changed something...?


Thank you,

Hi Igor,

Are you on Cloud or Server? I'm not sure if all of those modules can be disabled on Cloud instances! Which version of Jira do you use?

Thanks :)

Hi Micky,

We just started using JIRA Software (since last month) so I assume the latest version ? :):)  - We are using Cloud .

Anyway there must be some way to disable export of issues for some users or groups -  I found some posts about adding some code to the Announcement banner  , but it seams  they don't exist anymore...


Thank you for helping :)

Hi again!

Unfortunately, I don't think Cloud would allow you disable those modules easily. Can't try it out by myself as I don't have a Cloud instance but I do trust you if you tried :)

That being said, there's obviously ways with Javascript to supposedly remove the DOM elements but I wouldn't rely on that as the DOM elements might be rename or have properties changed :(

I'm afraid I can't help much here!

Good luck finding the best workaround!

Hi Micky,

Thank you for your trouble.

We gave our best  try :):)
