I would like to entirely disable the ability to archive issues in my project. In my permission scheme, the following permissions are currently blank (not granted to any users):
However, even after setting the permissions appropriately, I am still able to archive an issue by selecting More -> Archive from the menu. Can someone please tell me how to completely disable archiving in my project?
@JackI was able to investigate this issue further a little while ago. I am a member of the jira-project-administrators group so I have permission to do lots of things (including archive issues). I temporarily assigned one of my team members to the Administrators project role. I then asked him to try to archive an issue. He was unable to do so because the More menu did not contain an Archive option.
The moral of the story appears to be that the archive permissions in a permission scheme have no effect whatsoever on members of the jira-project-administrators group. They can archive whatever they want. I find this bothersome as I would like to disable archiving for everyone (including myself) until such time that we feel it is necessary to archive issues for clean up purposes.
