How to prevent user from deleting approved and taken leaves

We are currently evaluating the possibilities of the Jira Plugin Tempo for vacation time tracking. One problem we encountered is that, it seems that a user can delete his/her previous internal issues in any case though the leave may have been approved and taken already. In that case, we may not be able to purely rely on the Tempo report to count staffs' holiday leaves.

Hi Rong,

Couldn't you simply change the permission scheme of your project so only admins can delete issues?

Best regards,


Hi Peter,

Thanks for your reply.

But it doesn't work.

As you see, vacation plan on Tempo is done thru Internal activities (refer to So it has nothing to do with Creating/Deleting Issues, if my understanding is right.

We even tried to change the scheme so only admin can delete worklogs. But it seems they are not worklogs. Planing is just planning.

Best Regards,
