Adding issues in Epic permission


I would like to prevent a group of users to add issues in Epics. Is there a way to do that?

Hi Florian,

I found that it is not the schedule permission but the edit permission that control this access :

Thanks anyway for the answer :-)


Hi Sabrina,

I assume you are talking about dragging issues into epics on the SCRUM plan view? Users need the "schedule issue" permission to move issues into an epic. So you just have to make sure that your specific user group is not listed in the permission scheme under "schedule issue".

Hi Florian,

Yes, exactly. Many thanks for the hint, I will try that and get back to you.
