Able to do with RestrictedChangeHistoryTabPanel which extends ChangeHistoryTabPanel . Replaced ChangeHistoryTabPanel with RestrictedChangeHistoryTabPanel in  system-issuetabpanels-plugin.xml

That would require some coding - you'll need to add something into the core of the "issue view" that says "if project = X, do not render issue history".

You could do an insecure version with javascript to hide the tab, but the raw html of the page will still have it, and Javascript is easy to work around/break.

I think it might be more useful to ask why you want to do this though?

Thanks for your reply.. 

We are developing system where the users should the the person name who have update the certain fields. we are ok show the updated field value to all the users, but don't want to reveal the who have update the value.

I have tried with RestrictedChangeHistoryTabPanel class which will extend ChangeHistoryTabPanel,no use. Previously it work in older  versions. Now we are using JIRA 6.2.7. In this version , it is not working.
