How can I grant deletion for only one workflow step?


JIRA v6.4

I try to grant deletion to creator for only one workflow step (draft)?

I tried those properties :

jira.permission.delete.creator : granted

jira.permission.close.reporter : granted

But none worked.


Can you help me please?

With workflow properties, you cannot grant permissions that doesn't already exist. You can only deny/remove what is already there.

In your case, you will have to grant delete in the project permissions and deny it on all statuses other than this one.

Thank you Jobin,


but what is the permission related to deletion permission?

jira.permission.delete.creator : deny ?


You will find examples here:

THANK YOU it worked.

For your information the property is:

jira.permission.delete.creator : denied
