Is it possible to grant right to given user/role to create an issue of given type? Edited


When the functionality development is complete we start testing that software. And we want all users have right to create a "Bug" issue.

As I see in security settings, permission "Create Issue" can be given to user or group. But this permission gives right to create issue regardless ot its type (bug, task, sub-task etc.). I caanot find in documentation how to do it and if it is even possible.

Hello @Anton Kuharev 

Jira doesn't support create issue permission based on issueTypes. Anyone with create issue permission can create all the issueTypes irrespective of their role in the company. 

If you want to implement rules around creation of issues based on roles, then you will need to use paid plugins like JSU, Script runner, Automation for Jira, Power scripts etc.

Thanx, that's not good news :(

You can add a validar on issue creation, which will check that the current user (reporter) is in the required group or project role.


For example, you can try JMWE or Scriptrunner,

Do you mean that such a validator can be created with JMWE or Scriptrunner?

That's fine, thnx, but is it possible to solve this with standard Jira ?
