Field access restriction

How can I restrict an access to 1 field (custom field)? I want that only one role (or one user) can edit this field. Other users (roles) can view this field.

I believe the Behaviors plug-in provides this ability

Well, the script runner addon now, as they've been merged

The usual fix for this one is to remove the field from "edit" screens, add it to a "transition" screen, and have "edit <custom field>" as a workflow transition, to which you add "only role X can use this" as a condition.

Thanks a lot, I'll try it.

Hi Thomas,

At the moment it's not possible to achieve this level of restrictions within JIRA built-in tools solely.

However, you can try this plugin as it might be exactly what you are looking for:

Also, please check https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-1330 for discussions, reasons why you can't do it, and LOADS of workarounds.

I hope it helps!

Thanks a lot, I'll try it.
