I looked at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Working+in+text+mode#Workingintextmode-Workingintextmode-uneditable_stepsPreventingissuesfrombeingedited and I don't see the options mentioned in the article. I'd like to update some fields in closed issues to pull into a query.
You got two options here: remove the property jira.issue.editable = false then you and everyones else can edit an issue in closed status.
The second option is to add a transition from Closed to Closed and use the edit screen as transition screen. Make sure that there is a condition that only e.g. admins can use this transition. So only a few can "edit" issues in closed status.
Hello Udo... remember what barbarat mentioned about everyone being able to edit the issues... just give it a second thought before doing that... I would recomend going with the second option of an explicit transition for which you have more control over who can execute it.
