I want to hide the workflow button: Ribbon.List.Settings.ManageWorkflows

Which scope should the feature have (web or site)?

Now I try:

<HideCustomAction Id="RemoveRibbonButton"

on site scoped feature. But it doesn't work.

This is XML to hide ManageWorkflows button.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
          Location="Ribbon.List.Settings.ManageWorkflows" />
