How to hide 'assing to me' link in jira 6.1.4

I am about to upgrade jira 4.4 to jira 6.1 and the last problem i have is that i cannot hide 'assign to me' link under the assignee in people window. I am not talking about buttons - there are easly removable by simple disable plugin module.

Is there any way to hide/disable it? I need to have enabled 'assignable user' and 'assing issue' permission.

Atlassian support cannot provide me solution to this problem.

How to hide 'assing to me link':

1. backup original file atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip

1. copy atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip to temporary directory

2. extract atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip

3. extract jira-view-issue-plugin-x.x.x.jar (where x.x.x is version of your jira - in this case it is jira-view-issue-plugin-6.1.4.jar).

4. edit viewissue\peopleblock.vm

5. change line (line #9 in 6.1.4):

#if ($showAssignToMe)

to

#if (1==0)

6. save changes made in step 5

7. build jira-view-issue-plugin-x.x.x.jar (where x.x.x is version of your jira - in this case it is jira-view-issue-plugin-6.1.4.jar)

8. build atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip

9. copy changed atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip to atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/ (overwrite original zip)

10. stop jira

11. remove directory jirahome/plugins/.bundled-plugins

12. remove directory jirahome/plugins/.osgi-plugins

13. remove tomcat work/Catalina

14. start jira

If something goes wrong u can always use original zip from step 1.
