You should be able to remove the "Move" rights from issues in "Closed" status using workflow properties.

See more details at http://www.j-tricks.com/1/post/2011/02/permissions-based-on-workflow-status.html. Restrict the operation to a group of admins or an invalid group!

Nope. It is a standard functionality in JIRA. Doesn't require any plugins.


You can disabled it but i think that this action will be disabled in all status issue.

Look to this link it can help you


Hi Zezeto,

Thanks for your help. But is there a way I can disable only for 'Closed' state ?

Zezeto already said "disabled in all status", and that's correct. The permission to move issues is based on project and user, not status.

I'm not sure that there's a step property to prevent move either (there are properties to prevent comments and edits)

One trick might be to limit it - only allow "move" rights to "people who are named in a group custom field in the issues". On issue create, use a post-function to put "jira users" into the field, and on issue close, blank it out (you don't need the group on-screen at all to do this)

Hi Jobin,

Thanks for your help. Does this requires J-Tricks plugin to be installed ?
