Check out this previous post on this topic that offers up some workarounds:
Removing the users "Move issues" permission on the project would put a stop to this, but has the disadvantage of preventing the issue from being moved to another project if this is done regular.
Another Option could be to ScriptRunner, which has the ability to hide the move button with the Hide UI element built in function in ScriptRunner. You can set a condition that the button will be visible only for certain issue types, or possibly by user roles or group membership. Please see:
Unfortunately I can't remove "Move Issues" permissions or the "Move" button because the users use a lot this function.
I need to find a way to "block" the "next" button in the move issue screen if the "New Issue Type" selected is "Bug". I'm trying to use ScriptRunner but not sure how to specify that it should run only when moving issues.
Someone posted this, did you also try this?
Hi Vishnu ,
You can create a webwork plugin which extends the action on moving issue and put a condition which checks the issue type . you can see all the actions in actions.xml in the web-inf folder . Or you may edit the moveissue.jsp in atlassian-jira/secure/views/issue/moveissue.jsp , i am not sure but you can add a condition in this jsp which checks the issuetype selected and if the type is 'Change Resuest’ give a message.
I would also be interested in figuring out a solution for this.
What I'm trying to do is prevent users to convert custom Incident issue type into Story issue type on different workflows. We have an integration with our ITSM ticketing system and if users convert the "Incident" issue type to "Story" or anything else as a matter of fact, the integration would break between Jira and ITSM.
I looked at the moveissue.jsp file however I don't think it would be a good idea to modify core code as this would add another step into upgrades that admins will have to remember to take.
I've had the similar issue. I needed who can move certain issue types and who can create certain issue types.
I found nothing better than https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1211968/issue-type-filters-and-security?hosting=server&tab=overview
Hope that works.
