Remove BigPicture and BigGantt charts from certain projects

We are using both the BigPicture and BigGantt add-ins in our JIRA environment. However, in a lot of our projects we don't need these and having their blank sections in the project is taking up space and we need to get rid of them for some projects, is there somewhere you can go to configure which projects these apply to? Thanks, I'm still pretty new to JIRA so any help would be great!bigpicture-gantt.PNG

Hello there Matthew,

Thanks for your inquiry. 

With the release of the latest version, we have implemented a WBS Panel to BigGantt and BigPicture (beta) Cloud, as it was a feature available for our Server users for awhile now. 

We are aware of the fact that the large blank space left out after WBS is disabled can be a little annoying and seem obsolete, therefore we've already prepared a hot-fix which allows administrators to fully confiigue a Work Breakdown Structure module, including a possibility to switch the panel OFF

On the behalf of SoftwarePlant, I would like to apologize for the inconvenience. Please, await the upcoming plugin update which will give you much more control over the WBS expansion.


Kind Regards,

Piotr of SoftwarePlant 

Wonderful sound great! Thanks so much for your reply! If you wouldn't mind reaching out to me when that is ready I would really appreciate it.

Will certainly set a reminder to do so Matthew. :)

Hi Piotr, can you please tell me how to disable the WBS panel on the JIRA Issues view?


I really need to switch it off altogether, but if I can just make it blank for now, that will work for now.

thank you

Piotr: never mind!

I found it in the new settings!!!

Hi Ericka!

Glad you found it. Please use it responsibly. ;)


@Matthew Taylor
Hey there Matthew,

Maybe it's too late (or too early - depending on the environment which you use), but the ability to completely switch the feature OFF should be out by now. If you happen to have trouble with disabling it, please let me know or let us know over our ServiceDesk.


Cheers everyone,

Piotr of SoftwarePlant

Hi @Piotrek Romanczyk [SoftwarePlant]

We are using a Cloud Jira account and I have installed BigPicture and I am unable to find the setting to switch the view off in the Issue details view. Could you please help me find the same and turn it off in that view.

Thanks for the quick response @Ericka Samuels. There are so many settings now in the new Jira Cloud... I kind of get lost..!

Not to mention, I have now found the settings and successfully toggled them.

Thanks @Ericka Samuels for the sharing the screenshot. 

For Latest Jira Cloud versions following is the procedure:

Site Administration >> Jira >> Apps >> WBS Widget  Configuration: Turn off option Enable WBS on issue page

I can't find anyway to remove from a specific project, do you have any screenshots
