Disable removing issue links after it was closed

I would like to disable removing issue links after the issue was closed while allowing to link issue in close transition.

I was able to figure out on how to disable removing issue links after an issue was closed and is in the closed status by using workflow properties jira.permission.link.group.1=some-group.

However this will restrict from linking an issue while transitioned to close status, seems the permission is applied to destination status not the source status.

Any workaround for this?

if you want to disable "removing" issue links then your property should be something like this: jira.permission.link.delete.group.1=some-group. yours restrict linking to a group.

also you should add this to your "closed" status.

jira.permission.link.delete.group.1=some-group is not valid, getting the following error:


java.lang.RuntimeException: Unknown type 'delete' in meta attribute 'jira.permission.link.delete.group.1'. Valid permission types are defined in permission-types.xml


i'm not sure but since it says "Valid permission types are defined in permission-types.xml" you can try to add it to your permission-types.xml file which is in your ~/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes folder.

also this question may be helpful, too:
