Restrict changing rank for specific issue types to project roles

padraik Rising Star Jul 22, 2022

Hello - 

I am trying to figure out a way to define which issue types a user can re-rank by project role.

For example, we only want Product role users, to be able to change the rank of initiative and epic.  Manager and Developer role should be able to change the rank of Story/Bug/etc, but not initiatives and epics.

I have scriptrunner, with a growing knowledge of how to use it, but I can't see the solution yet.

Any ideas?

Hi @padraik 

For ranking there is a permission called "Schedule Issues" which can be assigned to a role, but is is not specific to an issue type.

May be you can use another project for Initiative and Epics? Then it should work.

I hope it helps.

Is there a way to create a listener for rank change, and check the user's project role against the issuetype changed?

A listener is too late - they will have made the change before the listener catches the event.  

You need to look at the users' schedule issues permission, as Ravi said.

Hey @padraik ,

that's not possible to achieve. Ranking in Jira is permission-based, and permissions apply to projects and will include all issue types of that project.

Best, Max
