Restrict the ability to execute a test in Zephyr

I have a set up one of our users as read only.

I require them to view tests, but not to execute them.

How do I remove the execute button for either a single user of a group?

Thank you

Hi Clair,

Zephyr for JIRA inherets JIRA's permissions. We do not have a way on our side to disable or remove the execute button from a specific user or specific group of users at this time.

Kind Regards,


It is now 08.04.2015 possible to disable or remove the execute button in Zephyr?



Is the functionality of hiding the "Execute" button based on the status of a testcase is available with zephyr now ??

This is a critical requirement for our customer, who is evaluating Zephyr..



Is there a way to hide the 'Execute' button for all users?

I want my users to manually go to 'More Actions -> Add to Test Cycles' and then click on the 'E' button near the test cycle which is listed on the page. Is there any way for me to hide the 'Execute' button from all tests?
