Restrict Assignee Change After Workflow Transition

Taha Tabatabaei February 17, 2024

Hi Jira Community,

I am configuring a workflow in Jira, and I would like to implement a specific assignee change restriction. Specifically, I want users to be able to change the assignee during the initial status (e.g., "To Do"), but once the issue transitions to a subsequent status (e.g., "In Progress"), I would like to restrict assignee changes to administrators only.

Could anyone guide me on the steps to achieve this using workflow transitions, conditions, and permissions? I appreciate any insights or recommendations on the best practices for implementing this assignee change restriction.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hi @Taha Tabatabaei 

You can do it via workflow properties.

Add property to "In Progress" status to restrict assign operation to certain group. E.g. jira-admins group.

Please see details: Use workflow properties
