How to lock Summary field for editing after ticket creation?


Is there anyway to lock the JIRA Summary field from editing after ticket has been created including the Detail view on the board?

It seems to work by removing the Summary field from the Edit screen scheme. However, it is still editable for in line change on the detail view on the project board.

How can we lock completely from editing including the Detail view inline change?

Thank you so much for your help and response.

Thank you Jack. That helps to finding the possible solution. However, I found out that there is a bug in JIRA 7.3.5 where the inlined edit on the issue Detail view page is still allowed despite of the field has been removed from the edit screen.
