Field level permissions are not possible in JIRA. There are commericial solutions available in marketplace like Field Security plugin.

A usual workaround is to put that field only ona workflow screen and add admin only condition on the workflow transition!

That's what I was afraid of. But there is so much buried in the JIRA tunables that just because I can't find something doesn't mean it is not there!

Thanks again.
