There is a system plugin called Issue opertions under that there are modules for exporting results to excel , rss ,word ,etc . You can disable these modules .

Or you can simple write a javascript which will remove this export button from the page .

Try the below script in the announce ment banner . Please test on a test environment before applying to live

<script type="text/javascript">
                if(AJS.$(this).html() =='Export'){

do not disable all plugins only the modules which are of type search-request-view

do you mean the plugin: Issue Operations Plugin ?

And do you know which functionality will be hidden if we deactivate this one plugin? (It sounds like more functionalities than only export functionality..)

I am not sure to understand you correctly. I could deactivate the plugin (about the plugin-interface from JIRA). If I have to disabel only types of search-request-views, where can I do this? Do I need for this java script? (For me it would be more easy to make a setting then change the java...)

PAste the above javascript in the announcement banner it will hide the Export button . Dont forget to test on a test environment first .

I could deactivate the export-kinds about the plugin Issue Views Plugin. After this the button Export don't content any entry. But is there a way to hide this button about another plugin?
