How to allow a set of users modify some fields in a ticket, but not others?

I want to allow some users to read/view all fields in a ticket, but only be able to modify some of those fields. And some of the fields will be custom. A brief look at the documentation leads me to believe that this level of granularity of access control is not available out-of-the-box. I guess what I would want is for each field to have attributes like "roles allowed to read" and "roles allowed to modify" (or conversely some additional attributes on a role). Can what I want be easily done with some custom code? Other suggestions?

Wow, third time today this has appeared. (Sorry if that sounds sarcastic - if it does, then it's aimed at Answer's Search and lack of FAQ functions, not the questioners)

See https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/288838/restricted-edit-access-to-custom-fields-in-jira

Thanks Nic. Will Quisapps work on any field or only custom fields?

From memory, it works on *most* of the system fields (I'm 99% sure it works for reporter, assignee, due date, but I'm less sure about the rest)

From Quisapps support: "For the time being JFS supports Assignee field, Time Tracking fields and all types of custom fields. No other fields are supported."
