Can we disable linking issues to an Issue when it is closed

Hi All

Is there a way to restrict linking issues to a closed issue ?

Thanks, Vishnu

Can you try removing the permission using worklofw properties?

Haven't tried that for linking but it surely works for some other permissions. Worth a shot.

Thanks for the link. It's similar to http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA044/Workflow+Properties

But I don't see any properties for restricting Issue Links.

You don't restrict the property. You restrict the permission as mentioned in the above post. Something like:

jira.permission.link=denied

If that doesn't work, try:

jira.permission.link.group.1=some-group-one

where some-group-one is a group that aready had linking permission but doesn't have any users in it or has only limited users like admins.

As I said before, I haven't tried this purticular example but it should work.

Thank you so much Jobin.

The second one works well.

Hi, I tried to disable linking but it only works when I want to disable Issue A (closed issue) from linking to issue B. It doesn't prevent me from linking Issue B to Issue A. My aim is to prevent any blocking issue to Issue A as long as it is closed, as this breaks the workflow I have set up. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I'm new to Atlassian and am now trying to learn how to configure it for our workflows.

kinda late to the party, but just adding 

jira.permission.link.denied with empty value

to status properties seems to work

I add the property to the closed status, but it doesn't work. It only works when I want to disable Issue A (closed issue) from linking to issue B. It doesn't prevent me from linking Issue B to Issue A

Dear Olaf, 

Did you found the resolution for this request?

@Olaf TroikeI have the exact same question as you - did you ever figure out how to lock linking issue B to issue A?

@Olaf Troike @Jonathan Smith dod you guys find out how to restrict issue B from adding a link to issue A where the  jira.permission.link.denied is in place for issue A

I have not found a solution.

No, there's no way to do this.

If you wanted, you could investigate amending the core linking code to add such a check, but that's a lot of work (and I'm not sure the requirement is actually that useful - how do you link to duplicates or refer back to useful tickets?)

My requirement is, just wanted to make sure that No one links any CR's to a Release which is already closed.

Dear Vishnukumar, 

Did you found the resolution for this request?

 

Thank you.

Regards,

Katarina
