Control edit issue permissions differently for different issue types


I'd like to set up permissions in such a way that one group of users can edit stories and another can only edit subtasks/bugs.  Is this possible?

Currently it seems that the permission scheme groups all issues together without a way to distinguish between them.

Hi Vadim,

You can use Advanced Workflow Properties and set the jira.permission.* to  the groups you would like to restrict to. This is done at the workflow level, hence allowing you to have different workflows for each issue type. means that only JIRA administrators can edit an issue
