Can you make Fix/Version only editable by a certain role

I see that on the project area that there are multiple fields you can control based on permissions of the individual but Fix/Version is not one of them. My question is can I make only that field editable by a specific group of people? If so how do I go about doing this? Do I need to create a new scheme ?

Hi @Heather Shaffer ,


No you cant do that exactly as you say. A workaround would be to create a self transition with a screen including only that field, and add a condition on that transition so that only a specific role or group can use it.

Hi Heather

To complement Alex solution, not an easy way but it works.

1) Remove 'fix/version' field from issue 'Edit' screen

2) Create a GLOBAL transition in the workflow, a self transition. That way it will be available in every status, but won't change the current status once used.

3) Add a screen to that transition with 'Summary' field

4) Add all necessary conditions to that transition, to make it available only to certain project roles.

Let me know how it goes.
