I've been asked to set up a state that will prevent users from logging work on specific issues in a project, despite the fact that they will have permission to log work on other issues.
The scenario is quite specific to our internal process, but it would be similar to a professional services company having a "Customer has been billed" status on an issue where any further hours cannot be logged. This is a contrived example so please forgive the flaws :)
Can I set it up such that an issue status prevents time logging? It seems something simple enough that an option may already exist, but I cannot find the right switch.
Sorry to resurrect this but I want to keep a history of my issue alongside your solution.
I have changed the Closed Step Property to jira.permission.work.denied / denied and it seems to do the trick!
However, it looks like the Transition Screen (to Resolve/Close issue) is no longer accepting the log work input. So, the Log Work field appears, I enter time, but the time is not saved (no error takes place, not even in the Atlassian logs!)
Looking into the Transition Post Functions, I see this in the following order (and according to Atlassian, these can't be reordered)
So, I see what the issue is (the first step in the transition is to set the status to Closed, so no further work can be logged against), but I can't find the workaround! Can you help?
