You can restrict which issue types to be shown in each project using Issue Type Scheme.


I suspect they're actually asking to remove issue types from the create list, but not the project. Similar to the age-old "I don't want group X to raise issue type Y in project Z" (in this case, you'd put "jira users" as Group X)

This isn't supported in Jira. Issue types are either available, or they're not in the project at all and you need to migrate any you want to remove.

I think you can do things with javascript or the behaviours plugin, which remove options, but I've not tried it in recent versions of Jira

Or migrate all the issues belonging to those issues to another project for archiving.

Thanks all I was able to do that using Lan D link ablove.
