Problem w/ Linked Issue on Screen

I feel like I've looked everywhere to resolve this on my own, but am hoping someone will point me to something fairly easy that I've overlooked. Here's the situation...

In my project:

  • Project permissions scheme prevents a certain role from being able to link issues.
  • Screen configuration for Create, Edit and View all have "Linked Issues" field available.
    • On this screen it clearly says "Note: when the screen is shown to the user only non-hidden fields that the user has permissions to edit will be actually displayed."

Yet, when a user with the restricted role creates an issue, the Linked Issues field is visible and allows them to make changes. Validation prevents anything they do from being saved, but I don't understand why the field even appears, especially since other restricted fields - such as Security Level and Assignee - do not appear.

I'm sure I'm missing something. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hi Dave

It seems that the situation that you are currently facing has bump into this bug report:

Please feel free to vote on it to increase its popularity and don't forget to add yourself as watcher to receive any latest updates from the developer and feedback from other users that is facing the same problem as well.

Cheers :)

Thanks for note, Daryl... However, there is a key difference -- the user in my situation does NOT have Edit Issue permission... I did end up posting my concern as an Atlassian support ticket, and they are trying to recreate it. So, it looks like I'm in a wait and see situation... I'll need to figure out some sort of workaround.
