Hi Julien

The source tab will be hidden to users not allowed to View Version Control in the related project permission scheme.For further details, please use the following link as your guideline:

Hi Julien,

Since you would like to hide the Subversion Commits tab in the issue view screen from certain users, I believe that this may be possible by configuring the View Version Control in the associated permission scheme. Basically, the View Version Control permission controls user ability to view source code commits details in JIRA issues.

I also found the following documentation which may help:

I hope that the info above helps.


Hi guys,

Your both comments answers my need.

Thanks a lot
Best regards

Hi All,


I am using JIRA 7.3.7 and tried the above solution for changing project permission for "View  Development Tool". But still i see it is not working.

I have made the "View Development Tools" permission for Jira-admins or with admin role. But i have tested and get to know that even a user in just a User role is been able to see commits in the "Subversion ALM" tab in the issues. 

Please let me know how to achieve this as this is  very important for our security for users. We are using a large number of users for single project in JIRA. Let me know if you need any other  info or details.  Thanks!

This is something that needs to be raised with the author of the add-on, we can't configure that.
