I want to give edit permission for 'Fix Version' field to set of users. Is there a way to do this?

There are several option for:

  1. If it is acceptable to do on sertain statuses you can create a transitions on each status on it self with condition for specified user group
  2. If this is the only field to edit you can place it onle on edit screen
  3. Create a plugin to add new action with issue.

You need to take a look at your permission scheme - the users need to have "resolve issue" permission.  And it needs to be on screens.

Thanks Nic, this helped me.

@Nic: Can user have permission to resolve the tickets but no permission to update FixVersion.

Not in JIRA Core, but Software separates the permissions out when using boards

Can anyone elaborate ?  I found the following link which isn't that helpful - according to this, adding an issue to a version now requires Edit Issues Permission, which is again, a pretty global permission with overloaded semantics.

No, that's wrong.  "Edit issues" is a specific line in the permission scheme.  It's certainly not a global permission, and there's no overloaded semantics, it's a single clear line.

Thanks Nic.  Can you point to some documentation which explains how JIRA Software separates the permissions for resolving issues and the permissions for updating fixVersion when using boards ?  The following link suggests that nothing has changed with respect to Resolve Issues Permission - https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver072/managing-project-permissions-828787763.html  Thanks again,
