Why do you want to hide this button?


afaik this cant be done by any screen scheme setting.

you may want to add a priority to your workflow where you specify if users can assign issues.

those who can't should not be able to see the "Assign" function.


In the Project Permissions assigned to your project, disable authorization "Assign Issues"

See this link, it can help you to understand more for authorizations
