Do not show Description on the create screen. Put it on Edit screen or any other transition that will be only visible by specific group or people. So for example .. You can create a transition called "Update Description" add only this field and set up Condition.
Thanks. I don't want to restrict workflow transition but only restrict ticket description field edit to a group of people.The user story is "as a requirement manager, I want feature/story ticket description be editable to requirement managers when ticket is in "open" and "in analysis" status, so that feature/story ticket edit permission is controlled. Is there a way to do this?
Log in as an admin
Go to admin and find the screens section, and add a new screen, putting the description field on it.
Go to the project and find the workflows that are in use. Edit each one of these.
For each status where you want to allow "edit",
Go to the project and find the "issue type screen scheme" - drill down into that until you find the screen used for "edit". Remove the description field from it. (You may need to create a new screen for this if the edit screen is shared with create and/or view)
Not off-the-shelf, that's why Mirek gave the answer he did.
There is another trick, which is painful to set up and maintain - you can set workflow properties to control the groups which can or cannot edit an issue when it is in a certain state in the workflow. As issue types can be set to use different workflows, you'd need one workflow for each different edit scheme.
