Restrict access to "edit" page

Is there a way to prevent users from getting to the "edit" page?

My problem is that I don't want people changing things such as Issue Type or Priority.

Remove those fields from the edit screen, so they can not be edited.

You could

  1. Remove their "edit" rights completely
  2. Remove the issue type and/or priority from the "edit" screen (leave them on the "Create" and "View" screens)

There are some other options, but at a glance, the second line above sounds like the right direction for your question? There's a few gotchas with it as well, but I won't waffle about those unless you confirm the basic idea sounds right for you.

Ah - thanks! I didn't see which screen was the "edit" screen. Taking the fields off will work fine.

hi kevin.

you can set workflow properties.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Workflow+Properties

so for example a property for an issue that is in state "closed" could look like:

KEY=jira.permission.edit

VALUE=false

nobody can edit the issue after it moved to "closed"

i personally use this:

KEY=jira.permission.edit.projectrole

VALUE=10001

so only users that are included in this projectrole are able to edit
