How can I stop users from commenting on closed issue?

Hi, I have added to my workflow the following properties on the status "closed", however users can still comment on a closed issue.

Jira.issue.editable - FALSE - FALSE

Jira.permission .comment.user - DENIED

Any ideas how i can stop users from commenting on a closed JIRA item?

Its a tricky one and that workproperties is not applicable for comment Field i guess. 
try this
Its for making non-editable , but have not checked for comment.

If that doesnt work , then u may have to edit,

CommentSystemField java class.

Your properties don't look right to me - they've got capitals and spaces in them.

The simplest "block all comments in this status" option is jira.permission.comment=denied  (or possibly = false, I've forgotten.  But it's one string, lower case and so-on)

Use this property to solve this issue,

jira.permission.comment.user = false


Yes I put the "denied" in the "Property value" not part of the "Property Key"?
