Closed status is un-editable. How do I change this temporarily?

Hi all, we have a workflow where when closed status that it is un-editable. I want to make it editable again temporarily.

I tried looking for: "jira.issue.editable = false" in any transitation to Close and don't see any properties used. I do see "jira.permission.edit.user" in the close status workflow itself, but I imagine that gives access not removes.

Do you think its being added via an automation? Anyway to see what properties a issue has on it?

Can I use: "jira.permission.edit.user1 = xxxx" to add another user profile to be able to edit it (then remove it later).

OKAY so I found what I needed for this.

First off: jira.permission.edit.user = xxx

Does not mean it combos with jira.issue.editable = false to make it non-editable to everyone accept that user. But instead on its own it will block everyone except that user. So it doesn't just give edit access, but disables edit for all else.

Also if you use: jira.permission.edit.user, you can NOT then add jira.permission.edit.user.1 as it will ignore it. Instead you must remove jira.permission.edit.user. Then you can use the version with a number in the front jira.permission.edit.user.1, jira.permission.edit.user.2 etc.
