My team keeps adding new user stories and associated them to closed Epics (which shouldn't be done unless I am aware and can document why). We have already told the customer these Epics are closed and we either need to associate the user story with a different Epic or consciously reopen the Epic. Is there a way to prevent users from adding issues to a closed Epic?
Finally, I have found a way to do it.
Just by setting workflow properties in the Done status of the Epic workflow hides both the button ("Add Issues to Epic" and "+" button)
Jira workflow property key - jira.permission.create.denied
Jira workflow property value - denied
For more reference -
Setting the jira.issue.editable property is not enough. That will prevent you from seeing the option to add a child story to the epic when you are viewing the epic. However, when creating or editing an issue you can still set the Epic Link field to an Epic that is closed.
Per this post
...there is an addon that might help. I haven't looked at the details of the addon yet.
Hi @Christina Olson,
Have a look at the advanced workflow properties.
You need to use the jira.issue.editable property
Adding a property like this will prevent closed issues being edited. It will affect all issues unless you give epics their own workflow.
