Disable users from uploading or attaching documents to Closed Tickets in JIRA Edited

New Admin to JIRA, I have been given the task to see if it was possible to Disable Users ability to upload or attach a file to a closed ticket in order to avoid discrepancies and ticket oversight of already resolved tickets.


Can someone walk me through this please?

You can forbid any edit of a resolved ticket. You can add a step property to the Resolved step

jira.issue.editable = false

Thank you for getting back to me. Working within JIRA to try and implement this.

Alexey is talking about Workflow properties if that wasn't clear from his response.   You could use a property such as than on the Closed step of the workflow to prevent users from changing closed issues.

You could also add a properly such as:

jira.permission.attach.group = Group-name

You could use that property on a closed step to only allow users in a specific group to add attachments when closed.


Thank you very much. I am reading through the documentation that you included. Trying to learn how to navigate through JIRA to implement the information that you and Alexey provided.


I will get back to you both and let you know how it goes thanks.
