Block to edit Due Date

Rodrigo I'm New Here Aug 11, 2022

I created some projects (Kanban), and i need to block edit Due Date by users.
Only edit by managers.

Users need to fill in the field on the task opening form, but should not edit it after opening it.

Can someone help me?

Hi @Rodrigo ,

If you have ScriptRunner, you could set up a behavior for that. If not:

You will need to keep the Due date field on the Issue Create screen, but remove it from the Edit Issue screen. 

That prevents any user from editing the Due date field. 

Next you need to enable managers to edit the field. You can do this with the workflowin combination with a screen. 

First you create a simple screen with only the Due date on it. 

Then you edit the workflow and create a transition from Any status to Itself. This is a special transition that doesn't actually change the status. You associate your new screen to it. And then you set a condition that checks if the user is part of the manager role.

Hope that makes sense!
