JIRA - remove 'assign' button in when viewing an issue


We created a custom assign field and when I view an issue, of course the default and custom assign field show up. How can I make the default 'assign' button not be visible?

Thanks in advance.assign button.JPG

This same process worked well for me to remove the "work" button. Follow this for the Assign button.


let me know if this helped you.



This isn't supported in the Cloud version. Are you aware of another solution for the Cloud ?

Try removing all users/groups/roles in the "Assign Issues" permission.

Hi Julio,

There's a knowledge base article that explains how to do that: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/How+to+remove+the+'Assign'+button+from+issues

i hope  Assign option should be hidden only for Bug issue type, is am right? if yes, then @Pedro answer might help by adding issue type condition. but you have to manually update that file when you are migrating JIRA to newer version.

As per my knowledge, use following script to hide "Assign" option

<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.$(function () {
                JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
       function hideAssignOperation(){             
              var projectName = $.trim($("#project-name-val").text());
              var issueType =  $.trim($("#type-val").text());
         if(projectName == 'Project Name' && issueType == 'Bug')
