How to restrict access of custom filed to developer role?

I want to create a cutom filed and it should be accessed by users having Developer Role.

Is it possible? How to configure the filed if it's possible?

I am using JIRA V5.2

just create new Workflow Action something called like Update Data and add required fields to that action screen and using condition you can restrict to developper role

I don't find this option. But with this Can I make this change permanant for cutom files?

Please note that we are using JIRA version is 5.2.

Jira does not do "field level security". You have several options though

  • Install the field security plugin from Quisapps
  • Write new custom field types that include restrictions like that
  • Remove fields from the "edit" screens, and place them only on "workflow transition" screens, then add transitions to your workflows that allow you to edit the issues (because you can add conditions to transitions like "must be in the role of developer"
  • (Before someone says "javascript" - I'd recommend ignoring them - it's hard to get right, harder to maintain, insecure, and a doddle to bypass)

Your version of Jira doesn't matter here, and you need to be an admin to do any of them
