How can I remove or grey out the "Configure Fields" button on a "create issue" screen so a user will not see it

You'd need to hack it out of the core code I'm afraid.  It is part of a template, so it's editing a text file (which is buried inside a plugin if memory serves) rather than code change + recompile.  As usual, I'd advise against messing with core code.

Nic, I sure appreciate your answer. I figured as much. I will plan on leaving it alone.

You might consider this javascript:

AJS.$("#qf-field-picker-trigger").hide();

where are you using this? need more info to consider

You can put a script like below in the fielddescription in the fieldconfiguration of the project / issuetype. <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"> (function($){ $(document).ready(function(){ removeTrigger(); // Alternative: JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (event,dialog) { $(document).bind('dialogContentReady', function(event, dialog) { removeTrigger(); } function removeTrigger() { // Verstecke Button zur Feldauswahl AJS.$("#qf-field-picker-trigger").hide(); } }); More professional solution would be to create a ressource plugin for javascripts and to include it there. As such resource is loaded on every screen / project, you must implement some logic, when the functionality shall be executed and where not. However, I did not do use that approach for such script yet.
