Is it possible to limit workflow transitions to specific users (ie, the project lead)?


I'm trying to set up a project in such a way that once a ticket transitions to a certian step, only the project lead (or any specific user or group of users for that matter) can continue to move the ticket through transitions

I cannot find any documentation on anything like this, so i decided I'd try here - not sure if anything like this is even possible though.

you can do this with workflow conditions. Just set a condition to the workflow-steps you wish to limit (User is in Project Role).
