Enable fields based on workflow step

Hi...

My first attempt at this. I would like to enable / disable a field for editing at a workflow step. For example we have a custom field "Requested Date and Time" after the issue has been raised we want to lock this field for editing or update. I can locate instances of how to lock an issue based on permission but I need to restrict the ability to update specific fields without preventing the remaining fields from being updated.

Any ideas?

Thanks Lyn

Hi Lyn,

You can use javascript for the purpose.

AJS.toInit(function(){

var field= document.getElementById('customfield_xxxxx');

var workflowSubmit=document.getElementById('issue-workflow-transition-submit');

field.disabled=true;

workflowSubmit.onclick=function() {

field.disabled=false;

}

});

Hi Lyn,

 

Did this actually work - as it is marked as an Answer? And how did You implement it..

 

BR,

We didn't actually implement this, as I couldn't get the approval from the internal owner of JIRA.  So I am not sure if would have worked or not.   I marked it as answered (from memory) as we are relying on transitions and JIRA not showing in View fields that do not have values.

Thanks for the help though
