Allow users witha typical role to modify issues only during a part of workflow

Hi there, I've got several status in my workflow : status1, status2, status3, status4. Between each of these status I have transitions. I would like to allow users (with a typical role) to edit some issues only from issue creation and status2, for example, and forbidding them to edit issues after that point. How can I do to do that ? I allow issue edit permission for the role, but this authorize issue edit during all the workflow... :-( Thanks, Christophe

You could use the workflow properties. There is a way you can set the permission to a role based on the status of the issue. For details please see here

Hi Christophe,

You could put the role specific fields on screens that are only used when transitioning from on status to another. If you do this and don't put the fields on the edit screen you can then use the transition validators to indicate which role can execute this transistion and consequently edit those role specific fields.

It's not possible to have role based permissions for each field on a certain screen.

Best regards,
