How to disable editing the summary and description on the Issue page

When an issue is submitted, the original summary and description should not be changed.  Is there a way to disable the update of these fields on the issue screen?

Have a look at the "issue type screen scheme" to identify the "edit screen" in use for the project/issuetype.

Go to that screen and remove the summary and description.  This stops people editing them via edit or clicking on the view screen.

Perfect! Thanks Nic!!!
