Is there a jira-plugin to achieve show/hide tabs in a screen with multiple tabs?

Hi there,

Please suggest if there is any jira-plugin to show/hide tabs in a screen that has multiple tabs. Or can we achieve this through any other way if not through plugin? The tab has to be shown/hidden based on field selection in one among the tab.

Example scenario: I have a dropdown field in a tab where the user selects a project type. Based on the selected project type the relevant tab has to be shown and other tabs has to be hidden.

Hope this is clear.

TIA!

Durga.

Hi Durgadevi,

You can do this using the Power Scripts add-on, which can also do countless other things you will likely want to do with Jira.

Here is a video tutorial walking you through how to show and hide custom fields on different tabs based on a select list value.

I hope this helps!

JIRA treats the screen as one screen regardless of any tabs you setup for organization. If you use a script to hide the fields they won't appear and I believe if you hide all the tabs on a screen the tab won't appear.

Hello, 

I am afraid you should write your custom Javascript for that.  For easier management of the javascript you could use Jsincluder plugin. It is free.  You can read more here about the plugin

BUT changing out of the box interface with a custom javascript is a bad idea because it is prone  to errors and unexpected behaviour. 

@Durgadevi Balasubramaniam, Did you get this done. I am also looking the same. If yes, how did you do that?

I found the showTab() and hideTab() in script runner. I made it work with them based on my requirement.
