Moving issues Closed


I need to blocker the button "move" for all issues closed. This is possible without blocker the botton on the issues open?

Edit the Closed step, and add the following:

  • Property Key: jira.permission.move
  • Property Value: false

This will disable the ability to move the issue when the issue is at a closed state. You can also add this property to other steps as well.

Restrict the permission based on the status. See for some examples.

Hi Valeria,

Justin Alex is correct. This is just in case you need more clarification.

You need to edit the closed status from your workflow by taking the following steps:

  1. While logged in as JIRA System Administrator, navigate to Administration > Issues > Workflow.
  2. Then you need to edit your workflow (If you are currently using the default workflow, you first need to make a copy of the default workflow and edit the copy)
  3. In the edit Workflow screen, find the "Closed" step.
  4. Click the view properties button for the Closed step
  5. On the view properties page you should find a dialogue to Add New Property. Add the following details:
    Property Key: jira.permission.move
    Property Value: false
  6. Remember to click on the publish draft button if you were editing an active workflow, or associate this edited workflow with the relevant project if it isn't currently active.

This should ensure that the move button is not available for issues in the closed step.
