How to restrict the setting of certain priorities to certain users?


we have 5 priorities for the JIRA issues here in my company:

Blocker, Critical, Major, Minor, Trivial.

I want just a few people (project leads, managers) to be able to set the issues priority to Blocker or Critical. All other priorities shoule be setable by everyone.

How can I achieve this? I was not able to find a fitting permission for this action. Thanks in advance.

You can try using Behaviours Plugin and using the "Read-only except for certain Role" feature by refering to this documentation.

Thanks, that was it. Installing the Behaviours plugin solved my problem!

It is not possible without coding.

Thanks for your fast reply. A friend pointed me to the JIRA Behaviours Plugin. I will have a try if it helps to solve my problem. At least the description says so ;-)
