Restrict the editing of fields in an existing issue but still allow adding of attachments

Hi Team,


I have been using the below transition property to restrict any editing in my workflow after a particular transition is passed through. 

jira.issue.editable = false


However, now I would like to keep the fields restricted to be edited but would like for attachments to be able to be added still.


Is this possible ?

Hi @avinod 

Instead of using this property you can please try this solution.

you can use another step property:


value: none (or just another text - not matching any group). If you put for example jira-administrators instead of "none", only members of jira-administrators will be able to edit the issue in this particular step (of course if allowed in permission scheme).

This also causes that "attach" options are still available in "More actions" menu.






Hi @Mayur Jadhav 

Thanks for replying to me. Could you please again confirm whether I should use it like below, to allow adding of attachments but not allow editing of any other field ? = none


Also, I hope this setting will reflect in the further consecutive steps too, i.e., starting from this step till the end of the workflow, no one would be able to edit any fields but would be able to add any attachments.
