Stop edit when completed/Done

Santhosh March 21, 2024

I need some idea,

We have a workflow for recruitment and added some status.
For example:
To do --> Work in progress --> In Progress --> Onboarding --> Completed.

Now Agents/Assignee can edit the issue till Onboarding.
But when it comes to completed stage, we don't want anyone to edit the issues.

So is there any options for achieving it.

I was checking on permission "Edit Issues" but it wont work.
So is there anything possible to achieve it ?

Hi @Santhosh ,

Do the following:

  • Edit the workflow that will be restricted;
  • On the workflow's diagram view, click over the status that you want to add the restrictions;
  • You will see a popup menu on the right side of the screen;
  • Click on "Properties" in the popup menu;
  • Add the following properties; 
    property key: jira.issue.editable 
  • Property value: false


  • Publish the workflow changes

I think this worked for me, but has issue in it

I had like multiple screen edit/view screen, but it is not showing when in "done" status.

I think I got the Solution, Its because the other multiple screen information is not filled. 

Thanks for the idea @Dexter de Vera

Hi @Santhosh ,

you can do that using workflow properties ( In particular, you need to add the following property jira.permission.edit.denied to Done status.

If you need to avoid also comments in that status pleass add also jira.permission.comment.denied

Hope this helps,
