Disable 'Move' option from 'More Actions' menu

Only in all the closed tickets, I would like to disable 'Move' option from 'More Actions' menu. Please help me on how to achieve this.

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 ?
