Hi Sneha


check out the following url -


You could use something along the lines of this, but you will have to obviously do it via a date range and pass through the users you want to deactivate. 


I would the run it on the Jira Scheduled Tasks OR run it as a one time execution on the script console.


Good luck!



Thank you!!

If you have any automation plugin like script runner, you can add a validator inside the work flow where you can create a groovy script to check if dates are the required dates, don't allow to create the issue.

I have used scriptrunner and i am able to delete the issues for that particular dates but is there any way so that user cannot login to the system itself

Why to stop login? you can stop them creating issues in a specific duration. Its simple, Inside the workflow on create transition, add validator , verify the dates , the group or project roles you don't let them to create issues. 


Now they will not be able to create issues withing a specific time period 

Sure... I will try this...thank you
