Remove Edit button on Issues

I want my users to use a specific Edit screen when editing issues, I have built it into a workflow transition.


As such I have created a button: Edit Issue.   However, people often click Edit, which bypasses the workflow controls and webhooks.


Is there a way to remove the Edit button?  (This applies to all my issue types.)


I have seen documentation that removes the button via a permission change, but I assume that also removes the ability to follow the workflow, which edits a issue as it transitions.

Hi @Greg ,

Under project permissions you will have Edit issues permission. Don't enable this permission to any one. so they will not get the Edit operation button.

If i do this, will they still be able to use the workflow edits?

Permission to edit issues (excluding the 'Due Date' field — see the Schedule Issues permission). Includes the ability to convert issues to sub-tasks and vice versa (if sub-tasks are enabled). Note that the Delete Issue permission is required in order to delete issues. The Edit Issue permission is usually given to any groups or project roles who have the Create Issue permission (perhaps the only exception to this is if you give everyone the ability to create issues — it may not be appropriate to give everyone the ability to edit too).

Yes. Edit permission is different from Workflow transition. Workflow transition can be enabled using conditions and Transition issues permissions
