Preventing Epics from being changed once marked as done or closed without reopening it.

How do you prevent fields on closed epics from being updated without being reopened. 

Currently if the epic is marked as complete, done or resolved the user can still select a field and modify it without reopening the epic. 

Is there a way to lock the epic fields down once the epic is closed?

Hi @Wendell Bickford - You should be able to add the following property on your resolved status(es):

jira.issue.editable

false

Here's more information on workflow properties:

Thank you, that is what I needed.

Hi @Wendell Bickford as @Mark Segall said the answer is workflow properties.
Here's a link to a Server Doc it's got other links for things like the API in the page showing more possible values.
