How to set permission on issues creation by issue type

I need to restrict Issues Creation, based on it Issue Type. For example, a Team member can create an issue of type "Technical Task" but cannot create a "Story". In that way, the role of the user in a project would determine the permission level to create an issue.

Is that possible?

No it's not. This forum is filled with questions about the same, just do a search.


Maybe you can set this using Issue Level security:

I just played around with the workflow and found out that a scripted validation (coming with the script runner plugin) on the create transition works pretty good as well.

This covers the 'Create' Transition, which is one case. Does Jira have any validator capability on the 'Edit' operation? Thanks, Mike

What exactly do you want to achieve? Maybe the Behaviour-Plugin which is now integrated in the Script Runner would help:

Is there any solution available for Cloud customers?

Maybe not so nice, but there is a way

1. Make unique Workflow for each Type

2. In each workflow set in validator on Creation transition a specific Permission (like Set Issue Security, Delete All Comments, Edit All Comments, Delete All Attachments or Time Tracking Permissions which we are not using)

3. Create permission schema where assign this specific Permission to proper Group of users

at the end Group has right to create issues of specific Type
