Visibility of fields

Hi together,
im pretty new in JIRA-world. I have an administration question to JIRA 6.1.4: For reasons of transparency, our customizer is also allowed to use JIRA. But there are some fields in issues, which he isn't allowed to see, e.g. the fields for the time tracking.
What it is an easy way to reach that goal?
Thanks a lot!
Martin

Not off the shelf, but Quisapps "field security" addon does the trick.

Your users will still be able to work out that fields exist, but they won't see the content of them.

Thanks for the answer. Is there no way, to configure JIRA in such kind of way, that you don't have to pay for that?

There's a few things that can be hidden, but not a lot. Some people try it with javascript, but that's a useless bodge because the data is still in the html, and it comes out in the reporting as well. Atlassian promote their tools as open and collaborative, and hiding information is the opposite of that, so they've taken the deliberate decision not to do it. And let an expert fill the niche for them. (There are some other things around that try to hide fields, but Quisapps pretty much got the niche covered, and they do it well)

Gah, sorry, the short answer is "no". You need the addon.

You can try Secure Field for JIRA plugin from the Marketplace:
