Jira does not do field level security. End of story.

Your options are all code based:

  • Write plugins to implement hiding
  • Write plugins that provide fields with security functions
  • Write javascript to hide stuff (bear in mind javascript can be easily bypassed)
  • Install other people's plugins (Behaviours or Field Security have already been mentioned) to provide the above

You could use JIRA Field Security Plugin to achieve this, but it's not for free.

Hi ,

Look at the link below,


It shows and hides the fields on radio button changes, so you need to check it against the group that you have, and do the hiding and showing.

Hope this Helps.


I dont think so that you can do hiding and showing using administration configuration settings

Hope this helps.

Hi Nitram,

Right now we dont have possibility to change the code, only through administration configuration settings can you say whether it will be possible or not.
