Hi Reshma,

one way in Jira to achieve this in Jira without the use of apps is to remove the fields from the screen associated with the Edit operation and move them to a different screen that is only available in a transition. You can then move on and restrict the transition to a group of users. But this means no one will be able to edit the fields when viewing the issue.
