Disable EDIT function on specific issue


I would like to disable the edit function on a specific issue for Team member role only.

Service Lead and other roles should be able to edit the issue and other issues on the project should stay with the default functionality.

I tried applying jira.issue.editable = false on the transition property but I am still able to edit the issue. This transition goes to a status which has no outgoing transitions.

The property you've tried is a step property, not transition.  Try adding it to the step (status) you want to stop them editing issues in.

For an example of usage, go find the Jira default workflow, copy it and edit the copy.  Look at the step labelled as "closed", you'll find "no edit" is set on that.

I have an existing issue which I am using for template in ticket submission.

This "Submit request" button clones the template issue. 

See workflow below;

There is no specific status on the submit request workflow. Is there another way to apply the "no edit permission for team member role" on this specific issue?
