I'm not sure what you want here, but I think what you will need for this is a "Validator" in the Create even of your workflow transition to do what you want. Maybe a script or Custom Field value checker, there a lot of add-ons for that.
Gabrielle has the right answer to "limit the ability", but it's a really ugly idea. User goes in to create issue, fills in a load of data, gets told they can't create the issue and that their way of logging it is "wrong". It's extremely frustrating to have that done.
A far better way to do it is to not offer the user the field, and calculate what they should have put in for them. Instead of "John can only put Y on the issue", then have a post function that says "John raised this, so I put Y in the field". Saves his effort, stops him getting frustrated and the problem goes away.
