Is it possible to have two edit issue screens in JIRA?

Tayyab Bashir Community Champion Apr 25, 2016

I want Closed issues to be editable but I don't want the edit screen appearing on Closed issue to provide all the fields that available in normal transitions? 

I know how to make closed issues editable.

So for e.g, the issue is on "Review" stage, and if I edit the issue, it gives: Comment, assignee, XYZ field. 

What I want is that when the issue is in "closed" stage, and I click edit issue button, it only gives option of Comment field.

it is possible but only for different issue types.

For one issue type it is not possible.

No, you can't do that without

  • coding
  • Behaviours in the Script Runner add-on could check the status and hide all but the comment field on the single edit screen
  • Move the "closed" edit into the workflow
