Is it possible to 'lock' a version? (prevent selecting version)

Is it possible to 'lock' a version so no other issues can set the 'fix version' to that version? Basicly preventing that the scope of the version will change from that moment onwards.

Prefferably by a post-transition step. if not supported ideas/suggestions how to achieve this are also welcome.

If you are looking to lock a version for new issues while keeping it active for existing issues, it is not possible right now. Since the versions are used in many places, that will need core code changes.

Archiving, as Christian mentioned, can work if you want to make it offline totally.

Thanks both! Could somebody advise how to archive a version during a transition (post function)?
