Why do you need Javascript to do it? You can do it in field configurations or take it off from the screens.

But if you must do it using Javascript, here is a snippet that will work for any custom field including version picker.


Where customfield id is 10000.

It is not working for me, not sure if it's because I am using Jira 5

I think I should specify few more things, I want to hide it even in view screen, here is my current code

<script type="text/javascript">

version = document.getElementById('customfield_10609');



if you want to hide the field in view screen just remove the field from view screen,

But I only want to hide it from certain users

The above code does it only for edit. Try Prasad's solution if you want to hide it from View as well.

Try with following code

$("#customfield_10571").closest('div.field-group').hide(); $("#customfield_10571").closest('div.field-group').show();
