Make Assignee readonly


I am trying to make the Assignee field readonly in Jira 5.2 with Inline editing enabled. I am using jquery:

<script type="text/javascript">
  AJS.$(document).ready(function() {
    AJS.$("#assignee-val").removeClass("editable-field inactive");
    AJS.$("#assignee-val  .icon-edit-sml").remove();

I put this code in the announcement banner but it does not work. However if I try it from the console in the browser (without the script tag) it does work!

Any hints?

Thank you!

You don't need to do all that. Just remove the assignee field from the screen that is associated with the Edit operation for that issuetype. And JIRA will not allow you to do inline edit of the field.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.

Have you tried Behaviour Plugin ?

It has a feature to make field to be read only.

This plugin is compatible with Inline Editing? I have read that only works if Inline editing is OFF.
