Hi @Harshit Grover,

In Jira there is no ‘direct’ way to restrict field editing to some users, but you can use a different approach.

You can use the workflow to restrict Priority field editing. The steps to follow would be:

  1. Remove the Priority field from the Edit and Create screen . (This can be done from Project Settings > Screens).
  2. Create a new screen and add the Priority field to it.
  3. Create a new transition from OPEN to In Progress and add a condition and choose the users you want to be able to edit the field (User Is In Any Group, User Is In Any Project Role, etc.). This way, it will be visible only to the users who are in that group or in that project role and nobody else.
  4. In the transition we created in the third step, add the screen (created in the first).

Here you have the workaround so you can check the step by step (you have to adjust the steps to what I have told you):

I hope this is helpful for you, regards!
