There are two things that I would like to be able to limit regarding adding/removing items to a sprint.
1) If the Sprint is active (is started) I would like a confirmation dialog to appear before adding/removing the items. The reason for this is when planning the next sprint it is easy to acccidently drag items into the active sprint rather than the next one. These then have to be removed but show up as scope change
2) I would like to restrict who can add/remove items to/from a sprint to ensure that only the "Product Owner can do so and not members of the dev team.
Ad 2) In order to add/remove items user need to have "Scheduled Issues" permission in the project to which the issue belongs. You can only restrict this to Product Owner and only he will be able to do this action.
I hope that will help.
Regarding 2) to clarify, anyone should be able to add items to the backlog, but only the product owner should be able to add items to a sprint.
The "Scheduled Issues" permission is documented as "Ability to view or edit an issue's due date" which would appear to be something completly different, unless I am missing something.
You mean, only the development lead should be able to add tasks to (or remove tasks from) an active sprint.
The product owner's job is to prioritize the backlog (i.e. the stuff that's not in an active sprint yet). Development's job is to work through the backlog in the order provided. Once development starts a sprint, the product owner has no business reordering the stuff that's in the sprint itself, adding new things to it, or taking things out of it.
Really the only time a new task should be added into an active sprint is if all the tasks in the sprint have been completed. When that happens, the development lead should bring in the next task from the top of the backlog.
