Making Columns readonly after a certain Status

Hi there,

I'm on JIRA v7.17 server instance.

Is it possible to make a field readonly for users/groups once it is in a certain status? I don't want users to be able to make changes to the description field once the requirements have been signed off (i.e. verified state). Only the Project Admins should be able to do this. 

I tried this :

But it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks,

Shanu

What property did you add on the workflow step?

Hi Jobin,

 

I added :

jira.permission.edit.group.1=mca-admin

Where mca-admin is the group that can edit the description field.

 

Shanu

Is that group already a part of the Edit permission? Or is the edit permission given to a bigger group like jira-developers?

The edit permission is part of bigger group jira-users.

 

Shanu

You need to add the other group also as part of the Edit permission. You can restrict it only if the group already has permission by itself.

Hi Jobin,

I don't understand what you mean.

Do you mean in the permission scheme I give Edit permissions to this mca-admin group specifically?

At the moment edit permissions have been given to all JIRA users and mca-admin is a subset of that.

 

Shanu

Yes, try that.
