Set Behaviour Hidden


Behaviours allow you to change how fields behave on issue Create or Update screens. Using this script, you can set a field as hidden on these screens, so the user cannot see it.


As an admin, I want to hidden a field temporarily so users can't see it for a specified time. I use this script to make the field hidden for a set time, after which it is visible again.

Good to Know

  • Set up this script as an initialiser.
  • As an example, the script set makes two fields hidden: the default "Description" field and a custom field with name "TextField".
  • You can use this script as part of a larger script to hide fields based on additional conditions.
