Jira - "Edit" ticket permission restriction for particular user

Sam Feb 07, 2019


I wonder if this is possible:

If a ticket is created by user “username

A description field may not be edited (everything else should stay editable)


Thank you

Hello @Sam

you need to remove Description field from the Edit screen. Then this field should not be editable. 

Best regards,

Unfortunately, it will also block editing for tickets created by all others.
I think I'll try Behaviours.
