Limit ability to change component only to certain project roles

Hi

We would like to limit the ability to change the component only to certain project role members and not to everyone who has edit permissoins.

How is this possible?

It's not. If you can edit an issue, you can edit it.

Jira doesn't do field level security. You could do it with the Quisapps field security plugin, or botch in some javascript (seriously, not advised), but Jira doesn't do it natively.

Or, you could move the edit into transitions and control them. Remove the components field from the create and edit screens in use, then put it on it's own screen. Then use that screen in transitions that go back to where they came from and are controlled by permissions matching your groups

Thanks Nic for your response. That helps.
