About creator of permission schema Edited

Hi guys,

We have a requiremnt about controlling privilege of edit/reconfigure permission schema

Current situation:

AdministratorA  create a permission schema and AdministratorB could edit/reconfigure it

Expected situation:

AdministratorA  create a permission schema and  only AdministratorA could edit/reconfigure it, and other administrators couldn't do it.

1. It seems not achiving it through configuration on the page, is it correct?

So,  we want to implement it by add-on plugin(servlet filter plugin) which means Java API.

2. Is it possible to get creator of permission schema by Java API, and which Class or Interface is available?

Thanks in advance.

That is the correct behaviour.  Your administrators need to be able to administrate the system, and that means having access to change all the config.  They don't "own" parts of the system, they have access to all of it.

You won't be able to do this with an add-on, and certainly not with a simple couple of class calls.  You'll need to get into the guts of JIRA and add functions to support and implement it.

Taking the example in your second question illustrates it - JIRA does not track or expose any configuration changes, so you'd need to implement that.  (It is logged in the audit log, but that's optional, and not a proper "ownership" system)

thanks for your help.

Do you mean that JIRA don't provide some API like 

scheme.getName();
scheme.getDescription();

to get scheme's owner or creator?

 

Correct.  It doesn't need it, as there's no ownership of schemes. 

thanks very much
