It looks like a fairly recent change in JIRA (6 maybe?) allows users to create components on the fly when entering bugs. How do I make this functionality go away? We have reports/stats that highly depend on known components and if users are able to create their own, I see the wild west coming. Thanks!
I tried this on my 6.2 hosted instance and users out of admin's role cant create components. The inline field editor accept a typed text but refuses to create a issue with an unknown component. Are you sure that this user doesnt have admin permissions?
