I would like to lilmit who can transition an issue's workflow.
Is it possible to allow only the current assignee to transition the workflow and anyone in a paricular group? So both criteria could change it.
I want all users to be able to view all issues.
I've looked into Issue Security but its not clear if you can limit the transition ability. Possibly a transition validator?
If you want to restrict the movment of an issue, you'll need to set a property on the step in the workflow. Go to the workflow step and click View step's properties. Then set a property, something like jira.permissions.move.user= user_name , jira.permissions.move.group = group_name , or jira.permission.assign.assignee to "granted".
This link http://www.j-tricks.com/1/post/2011/02/permissions-based-on-workflow-status.html is still a good source for more on this. You might also check https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Workflow+properties
Actually, workflow properties are overkill and over-complex for this.
If you look at a transtion, you'll see you can add "conditions". These allow or deny people to perform transitions based on all sorts of rules.
The really easy one is "only allow current assignee". "Only allow if user is part of a group" is another. You can glue them together with AND and/or OR statements too. You can do roles, reporter, project lead, assorted permissions, field contents etc etc etc. And write your own!
In fact, you should ALWAYS place at least one condition on every transition, even if it's just "person must be a member of jira-users", otherwise anonymous users can do stuff.
"Only allow current assignee" is not an easy to use option.
It fails when you add the Assignee field to a transition screen: If the assignee sets a new assignee before confirming the transition, the transition with a permissions error.
