Deactivate editing issues

I would like to deactivate the edit of a issue when it is in certain states. Is this possible?

The goal is this:

- Users can create and edit issues and then send it to another user.

- A this point the only things that can be done on the issue is to resolve it (Accepted, Rejected) but cannot change the content of the issue.

The most simple one is jira.issue.editable = false, added to the status you want to protect, but you can be more clever, letting only certain roles edit in the status for example.

So simple! Thanks a lot Nic
