Is it possible to allow adding attachments or editing a particular field of closed issue?

I have a workflow that denies editing after reaching a particular status (this is not the closed status), there are several subsequent statuses.

I use the workflow property jira.issue.editable=false for this status. But i do not want to block the whole issue for editing. It must be possible for users to add attachments and edit some fields of the issue even when it is editable=false.

Is there a way to solve this?

The whole point of edit=false is to stop editing.  That's what it's for.

Either remove it, or create a transition from status that goes back to the same status, with conditions to control who can use it, and with a screen that only includes the fields you want to let them update.

When status has jira.issue.editable=false property, self transition works for changing standard and custom fields, but does not work for adding Attachment. Attachment does not appear in an issue after pressing transition button.

Jira ver 7.2.9

In case set jira.issue.editable.denied = denied, jira issue is not editable, but Attach files button is visible and works well.
