Limit edit of certain fields

Is there a way to limit all fields for edit (except for 3 fields)?


I have multiple teams (i.e. X-Ray Techs, Dens Techs, Shipping Techs). The X-Ray Techs only need to view and edit their specific fields, Dens Techs as well, etc.?

Hi @Preston Warden ,

Sadly Jira does not have the concept of field level permissions. 

As you are on server you can look at Adaptavist Scriptrunner, that addon has a concept of behaviours which allows you to set a field read-only based on a scripted condition. 

Hmm. Do you know if there is a way to change the visible fields in the "edit" screen only when it's in specific transitions?

If you mean specific status then no, that doesn’t exist. 
A workaround could be to indeed:

  • remove the fields from your edit screen
  • add them to a transition screen, those are screens you can build separate 
  • block certain transitions using a workflow property to only allow the users you want to to call the transition/the screen

a bit more work but could be a workaround 

I would suggest making new transitions then, even if they are from a state back to that state just to call the screen on transition 

Suggest an answer
