JIRA project: best practise or straight forward method to disable a standard JIRA field ?

We need to disable the standard JIRA field *Label* for specific projects.

Is there a straight forward method / best practice how to do it?

In case of a custom field is could be disable on a per project label - but this option is not available for the standard JIRA fields.

... just want to avoid using Screen, Screen Schemes etc. ....

Globally, remove the field, or disable the module that provides it.

For a project by project basis, I'm not sure where your problem lies - labels ARE a custom field.

For the actual system fields, you will have to use schemes (Field configuration, or screens) - that's the whole reason these schemes are there!

ACtually, labels are not a custom field anymore, although there is a label custom field as well. But I agree with the rest. Use field configuration to hide them and remove them from screens.

Sorry, did not mentioned the JIRA version - it's 5.2

And Labels is a default field since JIRA 4.2
