How do I disable "configure issue layout"

Hi community,

In the new issue view, everyone has the permission to change the issue layout. At least in our configuration. This is quite annoying since it gets changed frequently. 

My question:

Kind Regards,

Hi @Andreas Schwarz , it should not be the case that any user can edit the default issue layout. Are you sure this is the case? Can you check to see if these users that are able to edit the issue layout have project admin (or higher) permissions?

you might want to inspect the underlying role or group that your users are put into and if that role or group is given administrative permissions unnecessarily.

Thanks, you are right. We have given administrative permissions unnecessarily.
