Remove releases from project sidebar


is it possible to remove items like "Releases" or "Components" from the project sidebar of software projects?

Background: there are business people out there which love Boards, but not the technical stuff that comes with software projects per default.


Kind regards

You can try to use web fragments functionality of ScriptRunner for it. Go to Web fragments and choose "Hide system or plugin UI element". Then type Component in the Hide What text field. You will see serveral items. Choose the one you need. Do the same for Releases.

Thanks for this - will it hide based on project or user please?

Where do I find that Web fragments?

I'm using the Jira cloud version.

It worked with

  • com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:components-page
  • com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:release-page


!(jiraHelper.project?.key in ["SOMEPROJ"])

@Alexey Matveev _Appfire_ @Christian Pascher

Is there any possible way to remove Releases from side bar, without using Script runner??

Please let me know.


Thank you. 

You can do it via CSS in the announcement banner. Go to Administration -> System -> Announcement Banner. Put in the below CSS and replace the {ProjectKey} portion with the key of the project you would like to remove them from.

<style type="text/css">
/* Hide components and releases */
a[href*="/projects/{ProjectKey}"][data-link-id="com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:release-page"] {display: none !important;} </style>

Great answer, thanks!

Is this only applicable for Jira on-premise version?

Is there a way to archive the same for the Cloud version?
