Prevent New Issues from Being Opened on a Next-Gen Project

I would like to keep a next-gen project open and maintain the ability to work currently open issues, but prevent new issues from being opened under the project.  Is it possible to do this in next-gen?

Hi Bethany - To do this you can assign those project members who shouldn't be creating new issues to the "Viewer" role.  That will limit those role members to commenting and attaching files on those issues.  You will likely want to keep a few users in the "Member" role so that issues can be transitioned, etc.  Nextgen projects do not offer any finer permission control than that.

Excellent, thank you!  Not a perfect solution but I think it will suffice.

Happy to help.  Would you mind taking a moment to accept my answer?  Thanks!
