Create Issue Permissions - assignee, by user field


I would like it that certain groups of users can create an issue type and others that then are assigned or named in a custom field could create sub tasks. It appears when setting these fields against the create issue permission it allows all users to create the issues.

Is there a work around for this?

Thanks in advance

there is no restriction on sub-tasks atm

"create issues" can be restricted within permission you already found out

you may watch&vote that ones

so am I correct in believing that adding the asignee or by a user field to the create permission does not carry out any validation and is therefore not valid?

As currently I wish to restrict only the user who has created an issue to create a sub task - it appears anyone can create a sub task. The only way around this is to restrict users to be able to browse those they have created, but this is not suitable.

thanks for clarifying this

yes. users with "Create Issue" Permission will be able to create sub-tasks.
