Hi, we are trying to implement a custom field in our Epic issue type, but would like to limit the edit permission to a specific group.
In the same time, we still want our project lead and project role to have ability to edit issue, just not that one specific field. Is there a way to this do? We are using OnDemand.
You can't do it directly, Jira doesn't do field security (and OnDemand doesn't let you install plugins that do it)
What you can do - remove the field from the edit screen (and possibly "create"?). Create a screen that does include it (actually, you can re-use the "view" screen, but often that doesn't fit with this trick). Finally, for each status in your workflow, create a "looped" transition that doesn't change the status, use the new screen for the transition and then put conditions (e.g. "only group X") on those transitions.
