I found another problem while working with JIRA Agile. I have set up my project in the way that anonymous users can create issues, place comments and can view my project. They are also able to view the Agile board, but that causes problems.
Anonymous users are able to move issues to other swimlanes, and change the issue status in general. This causes major problems in our workflow.
Is there any way to prevent anonymous users from changing the issue-status?
You need to protect the workflow transitions with "conditions".
The default is to put no conditions on new transitions, and that catches out a lot of us when we create them. You need to edit every workflow and add something like "must be in the role of users" or "must be in the role of developers"
This changes in 6.3.something of Jira - a new "permission" for "can use transitions" arrives, which covers this case quite neatly...
