Limit permissions to add items into an Active Sprint

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 (Scrum Team).

I tried restricting "Schedule Issues" Permissions to only Product Owner, but doesn't restrict the rest of the team to add issues to Sprint, as I have given them Edit permissions. 

Any other option to do so?

Hi @akunati,

Restricting users from adding/dragging issues into sprints — Only users with the Schedule Issues and Edit Issues Project Permissions can add/drag issues into sprints. If you would like to prevent users from doing this, restrict their Schedule Issues and/or Edit Issues permissions.

Hi @Ollie_Guan, I observed that unless I restrict users on both - Schedule Issues and Edit Issues, which is not an option as I want the team to be able to edit issues, but not add issues to Sprint.

Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Hi @akunati,

If you give the user edit permission, but there is no scheduling permission, the user should have the following prompt when operating the sprint.

“You cannot perform this operation because you do not have "Schedule" permission.”

JSWSERVER-8964 might be relevant eventually.

@Ollie_Guan, Unfortunately, just having edit permissions is giving developers ability to add issues to Sprint, we're using JIRA Server (JIRA Software 7.3.3) version. What version is it from above screenshot?

I have tried to manage this using "Manage Sprint" permission also, but no luck.

Any other suggestions?

@akunati  There is no  other suggestion,  you need  to vote and wait  for implementation according to Atlassian policy.


Best regards,
