We want to disable the possibility of creating issues by a specific type in some of our JIRA projects.
There are already issues with this type in the projects and they should remain.
But we don't want new ones with this type.
What are the ways to implement that?
No, but there are some (hacky) workarounds.
JIRA doesn't do this at all, it assumes that if you have an issue type in a project, you want to be able to create issues of that type. Not a bad assumption, but there are cases where you'd like to deprecate an issue type, and there's an old, old, old request to be able to do it, which Atlassian closed with "not going to fix". There's also a number of cases for "only allow certain types of people to create certain types of issue", but the stock answer to that is "you should be using separate projects for them". Personally, I'd like to see support for issue-type by group, but I don't think it's going to happen soon.
So, the workarounds:
