JIRA: Restricting the original estimate field once it is set by a certain project role

Danny Harris Community Champion May 11, 2017

Is it possible to restrict users so they are not able to edit the original estimate. Instead they can edit the remaining estimate and log time against an issue?

No, JIRA does not have "field level security" that would allow you to prevent specific fields from changing.

Hi Nic,

That is a shame. Would have been good to have the original estimate uneditable once a sprint had started and the remaining estimate was the only field editable during that time. 

I will look for an existing feature request ticket, if there is not one I will create one. 





did you find any resolutions of this issue? Some add-ons?

Hi Dmitrii,


Unfortunately not. I have not been able to find a plugin that offers this functionality either. 

I'm also struggling with the sprints due to same issue, Team members editing the original time estimated while sprint planning easily.. & I'm loosing the track of Original Estimated Hrs. ! this very basic things to have ! ! :(
