Restrict an issue so the only editable field is assignee


Can anyone help ?

When an issue is in a paticular status (in this case "Approved"), I would like the only editable field to be the "Assignee". The user shouldn't be able to edit any other field.

I've been looking at the workflow properties but I haven't had much joy.

You could use Transition: Assign Screen in the workflow step moving into Approved. Or create a new Edit Type Screen with Assignee as the only option.

Any ideas ?
