Hello,

Have a look at status properties. I think there is a property which forbids to edit the issue in the closed status. Kindly read the following article about status properties

http://www.j-tricks.com/tutorials/permissions-based-on-workflow-status

Thank you for your response , but is there any solution that can fix the problem from the code and not editing permissions in jira it self ?

The permission is there specifically to block code and users from deleting stuff!

Ok then , thanks a lot
