How to hide JIRA's default timestamps from issue view?

There are a few date values that JIRA seems to automatically add to issues: created, updated, resolved, probably some others.

I'd like to hide one of them (resolved), since we have a corresponding custom field for that and we wish to deal with it ourselves. What would be the correct way to hide it from issues (it doesn't seem to be affected by screens)? I tried looking at JIRA plugins, but the whole dates panel seems to be a module for a larger plugin.

Use some javascripts in the announment banner and hide it. Similar one https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/57653/is-it-possible-to-active-voting-for-only-one-project

Identify the id of the field and remove the if condition in that script.

Thanks. I had already figured I could do that, I just hoped there was some better way :)

Currently, I don't think is possible. To hide the timestamps, I guess it will involved source code configuration level to perform this move, since it will affect the original template of the JIRA issue viewing page.
