how to define custom field readonly in a listener

I need to define custom field read only via listener.

i have a specific group that can edit a field,  I created a behavior and it works for jira well,  but we work with structure and in there the field is writable, I want to use listener to make the field read only, or add and remove the field from the screen

Hi @Hadas Virtzberg

It's neither possible to set a field to read-only nor hidden using the Listener.

This is only doable using ScriptRunner' Behaviour.

A similar question has been asked and answered previously in this community post.

Thank you and Kind Regards,
