I need for individuals other than the original diagram creator to be able to edit a diagram. I have experimented with several different permissions settings, but the diagram is treated as an attachment and there are no permission settings for editing attachments. I can give everyone the ability to delete it, just not to edit it. The original creator is able to edit the attachment, but the edit icon is grayed out for other users. I am using version 1.2.3
Suggestions on how I can overcome this?
Currently, we allow users to edit the diagram if any of the following conditions are met :
We're open to suggestions on permission handling as long as they make sense.
As of 22.214.171.124 edit permissions have been reworked. In order to be able to edit the diagram, user must have attachment deletion permissions.
This is because JIRA API does not properly support updates to attachments contents. Only create and delete operations are supported by the API.
Is there a posibility expand permission to use user custom field? For example users in user custom field 'Technical Writers' are able to edit / add diagrams? Tho, that would require some configuration UI.
We are having the same issue where we are not able to edit other user's diagrams with drawio in Jira. Basically we were hoping that by assigning the issue to a user will allow that user will be able to edit the diagram but we have found this is not the case with our install. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. We have purchased the starter plugin for confluence but have not gotten around to installing it yet. We are thinking the alternative is to collaborate with attaching Visio diagrams or we can start looking into Gliffy. FYI - we are using drawio 126.96.36.199 with version 6.0.5 of jira.
Thanks, Boris. I couldn't find that documented anywhere and hadn't tried all those permutations yet.
It seems like adding a permission for "edit all attachments" or "edit all draw.io attachments" permission would be JIRA-friendly way of handling this.
I have same issue. What type of administrator do i have to become to use this as a temporary work around? This almost seems like a deal breaker when dealing with wiki like technologies because you want regular users to be able to contribute to drawings. FYI - we are using drawio 188.8.131.52 with version 6.0.5 of jira.
