Is there way to disable comments for group of users for specific workflow status



When issue turns to "In review"status, comment field should be disabled for specific set of JIRA users (it can be a group or individual users). Is it possible with JIRA v6.4.2

I tried using the property key jira.permissions.comment = disabled and jira.permissions.comment.user = username and = groupname but that didnt work out


Can someone help me with it

im only familiar with jira, not jira-agile. there may be better solution for this but you can always hide things on screen depending on some conditions using javascript. i would create new plugin which contains a js script in atl.general context. that script could evaluate condition using JIRA rest APi and then just hide the comments from the dom.


Additional Thoughts:

you can specify the users or groups that meet the condition either hardcoded in script itself, or you can provide a special administration webwork that lets the administrators to set up and persist condition parameters. Then you could expose a new Rest Service which basically receives username + issue and returns boolean weather the user meets the condition to comment that issue.
