Hi All,

I just tried the following property in Parent task when it is in a status xyz to restrict transition of subtask.


But its not working. Any suggestions on this.

Hello @Madineni ,

Could you please elaborate your purpose/requirement.

Hi @marina-s ,

You can add property as:

Property Key: jira.permission.edit.projectrole

Property Value: <id of project role whom you want to give permission>

on every single status of the workflow and then publish it. If the workflow is shared among other issue types as well, the restrictions will reflect there as well. If you don't want that, copy the current workflow and add property there.

Best Regards,

Swapnil Srivastav

You can do that by putting "sub-task" under separate workflow.

Than add the entire workflow status with property:
