hi Renjith,

how can i disable the default Assign operation? i don't know which System Plugin has the assign-issue module ?


Go to System Plugins, Expand "Issue Operations Plugin" and disable "View Issue Ops Bar Assign Link" which is same as "assign-issue" which Jobin mentioned.

Hi Chen,

The field can be added to the screen that you have associated with this project.



hi Sap,

are you sure?

this Assign Screen is not like the Create,Edit,Resolve or Close..workflow screen ,it is not configurable. i.e. can not add system or custom field on the screen.

Hi Chen,

I agree with Renjiths option.I misunderstood your requirement.You can do this as he said by making the assign as a part of your workflow.



Hi Chen,

Do u want to disable the assign tab that u see as default on the jira page--i mean the issue.


i just to hide the default assign option on issue page,because i have add assign transition to workflow.there may be duplicate

Hi Chen,

usually its a permission given to a group in the respective project that lets them see it.If you want to hide it remove or modify the permission as it suits your requirement.Should help.

Issue Operations Plugin in system plugin, .

View Issue Ops Bar Assign Link


yes,it also affect all projects.but Assign Issues and Assignable User Permission is still useful,i just hide the default Assign Option,and use Assign transtion in workflow instead

But wouldnt it also disable the same for the users in other projects(who may need it) and be a problem later on

Did this help?
