Closed Issue can be edited - but it must not


we use Jira and I don't want our Users to edit an closed issue.

I use jira.issue.editable=false for the closed Status but the issue can still edited.

What am I doing wrong?

Hello @Sabrina Pfirschke 

This is how I write it and it works for my closed status. So I would guess you need to remove the editable=false and set it in the property value instead.


I hope that this answer solves your issue! :-)

Best regards,


I expressed myself wrong.

I used the Key jira.issue.editable with the value false.

Sorry for the misunderstanding

And that property is set on the closed status and not the closed transition?

@Sabrina Pfirschke - did you publish your workflow after adding that key?
