How can I prevent comments on a closed issue?

I've added 


to the closed status on the workflow according to but customers are still able to comment on the issues. Does anyone have a working solution for this on Jira 8.x and JSD 4.3.x? Thanks!

I just tested this out on my Jira.  And it worked perfectly.  On status "Closed" add property:




The property looks like this:


I tested trying to add a comment both from Jira and from the portal.  In both cases the comment option was not available

The property: 



Would anybody know a way to still allow internal comments, but block public comments on an issue once it's closed? 


jira.permission.comment.user and a Property Value of false worked for me, but internal comments would be nice to still add.


(If anybody knows another discussion about this, please let me know!)

Thanks in advance :) 

Hey, did you resolve your issue? How to allow making only internal comments in closed issues?


I followed the link and maybe that property doesn't work.

See this:


JIRA 6.1.x

Add the property jira.permission.comment.user and make the property value false


Hope that helps


Remember to Publish your workflow after you've changed the properties. The change doesn't come into effect until then and it caught me out when I tested it.

For the Cloud version I used a Property Key of jira.permission.comment.user and a Property Value of false and was successful (once I'd published the change)
