You need to re-think how you're deploying Jira.
Edit is the end-all, be-all of Edits. It doesn't mean "kinda edit" or "edit with rules": It means EDIT.
We have the same story with Delete: It's not a soft-delete, it doesn't go to the trash can, it's GONE.
Do NOT grant edit access to people who do not understand the data constraints. Use a no-result transition with a name like "Update details" with Validations/Post-Functions instead and restrict EDIT to admins only.
