Restricting Activity Detail In Jira On Demand

Is there a way to restrict what activity a user or group is able to see using on demand. The users should not have access to the work log but I do not see a permission to alter this.

We do not have this feature of *Hide Worklog* permission. However, we had an ongoing request for this feature that has been tracked here:, which discussed about hiding worklog or time tracking for certain users. Unfortunately, it's closed.

What is possible at the moment is add/edit/delete worklogs which you can manage from permission scheme: also maybe you can take a look on how to [restrict the visibility of worklog on an issue:

Thanks for the response, too bad this feature request was closed, it seems like a fundamental function that users should not be able to see the administrative side of the house unless there is a justifiable reason.

Looks like this page: been deleted. I will take a look at add/edit/delete work logs, but I am not sure how this will help if you are using work logs. If I understand it correctly, the user can see the work log while in progress.
