Custom field modification permissions

Hi All,

Is it possible to create a custom field which can be modified only by certain Jira users and not all?

When i say "Modified" i want something like when any Jira issue created any user should able to select value of that list for the first time and once value has been selected modification can done only by specific User.

Any link / pointer would be of great help.

You will have to do some dev work for this. i.e. develop a new custom field type.

A workaround might be to allow the custom field on Create screen but not on Edit screen. Editing should only be allowed via workflow transition and you can add any condition there!
