How to change the permissions of the edit field of issue in the project?


Hi community.

I am trying to change the edit button permission of the issue.

What I want to implement is to control the permissions of the edit button of the issue based on changes in the value of a user-defined field.

For example, make the edit button hidden or uneditable by user-defined values.

I will eventually apply this solution to Workflow.

You can't completely change the permissions other than with the "Edit Issue Permissions" in the permission scheme.

I understand that the permission scheme can't be configured to be conditional. It is all or nothing.

The closest you can come to your requirement is with:

But the user will still have permission to use the in-line edit option and would still have permission to edit the issue with the REST API or any plugin that offers issue editing functionality.

Another approach you could try is to use behaviours to make all your fields read-only when your condition is true. This way, the user will see and be able to click the edit button, but won't be able to change any values.

Thank u.
Thanks for giving me this idea, I'm trying to figure it out.
