Hi, I need to disable editing summary and description ONLY in JIRA but allow editing for the other fields. I searched everywhere but couldn't find an answer. Is there any solution like an add-on or something?
Please advise. Thanks.
That's about the only option. If the field is not in the edit screens, then users cannot edit.
I supposed you could Hide them in a field configuration, but then nobody would ever see them rendering them useless.
The Behaviours Plugin *might* do it, but I've heard conflicting information about it.
As far as I know, removing it from screens is the only option. Note Hiding it is completely different from Removing it.
There is also the Field Security Plugin, which is a paid plugin. I have had no experience using it though, it claims it can make fields read-only.
Sorry, I meant to edit my response with a link, then my home network tanked.
Try removing them from the Edit Screen of the project. That will prevent the fields from coming up when a user trys to edit. They would still be accessible via Bulk Edit.
