does anybody know how to configure JIRA to block editing issues (stories, sub-stories, ...) when another user edits this issue?
I had this issue, that when 2 (or more) user edited a story, the changes from the one who first finished editing were lost.
Thanks in advance!
I think the changes of the first user are not lost they are still in the history. So if both users start editing at the same time will result in the same as if they start looking at the same time but the second user starts editing after the first user has saved his changes. It will be the same outcome - the changes of the second users wins. So a blocked editing will not help.
The only way to do this is to actually move ALL your edits into the workflow and double up the status. I.e. a user moves an issue from say "open" to "open and locked" (using a permission scheme that blocks any further moves to everyone except the admin and the user who moved it into locked), then they can edit it on the way back to "open".
However, don't, it's messy, painful and ugly.
