how do I hide fields using Behaviours?

Hi there


Does anyone know if it's possible to hide a field all the time (not just when editing) for users of a certain role, using server-side scripts with Behaviours?

I've tried this but it's not worked:


def LS = isUserMemberOfRole("my_team")
def ff = getFieldById ("customfield_10003");
if (!LS) {

It depends a bit on the field type. There's a semi-experimental feature called hidden fields that can let you hide fields if they're of a hideable type. If you create a custom field with the type of Hideable Free Text Field (unlimited text) or Hideable Text Field (< 255 characters), you can specify it as hidden so that it will disappear from the view issue screen, REST API, and other places. You can convert existing fields to the hideable type, but be forewarned, 'tis not for the faint of heart. smile
