Scriptrunner behaviour - Prevent Fix Version updates during multiple statuses Edited

I have tried a few methods, but I'm unable to prevent the Fix Version/s field from being edited in about 4 statuses.  I've created a Behaviour and tried the following conditions (at different times), but neither are preventing edits to the Fix Version/s field.

When : Workflow Step <status 1>
            Workflow Step <status 2>
            Workflow Step <status 3>
            Workflow Step <status 4>


Except: Workflow Step <status 5>
            Workflow Step <status 6>
            Workflow Step <status 7>
            Workflow Step <status 8>
            Workflow Step <status 9>
            Workflow Step <status 10>


The Behaviour is mapped to All Issue Types & a few projects.  The workflow steps would also span multiple workflows.

I have another Behaviour preventing a custom field from being edited by project role, not status.  I tried disabling that to see if they were conflicting with each other, but no luck.

Hi @Shannon Bennett ,


See if these two links below could help you to achieve your goal: 

Try to use if-else statements in your Behaviour to set the setReadOnly() method as true or false and determine which status the field can or cannot be edited.


I hope this can help you.



Alexandre de Sousa.

Behaviours will not work on the "View screen", rather if a field is "affected" by a behaviour and a user tries to edit it, it will direct them to the Edit screen instead where the Behaviour should work.


Could you show us the behaviour implementation -- the settings and conditions?

Could we eliminate this being a bug by setting the fixVersion field read-only at all times, in some sample project? Just to see if it will work regardless of the status.

Hi @Shannon Bennett,

I have tested below code in my sandbox by adding it as server-side script for fix versions field in behaviour 

def fVersions = getFieldById("fixVersions")
def status = underlyingIssue?.getStatus().name
if(status == "To Do"){

Hope this helps
