How do I edit conditions on a workflow to ONLY allow users in a custom field to edit?

Editing an issue is not a workflow transition. I think only way to do it making issue is not editable on the workflow status and defining your custom Edit transition which transition issue to the same state. For example add an Edit transition from Open state to Open state and allow only some users to execute this transition. To make the issue not editable in any workflow status you can set "jira.issue.editable" property to false.

You don't.  Conditions only stop workflow transitions from being available, they have nothing to do with edit.

You can set properties on a status though - open up the status you want to restrict edit for and put in

jira.permission.edit.userCF=12345

This will allow edits to users named in the customfield with id 12345.  You'll generally need to remove the "edit" permission from other users.

Why don't you just point the permission scheme to use that custom field for the Edit Permissions? Is there a reason it has to be a 'condition' when we are on a 'step'?
