Restrict moving user stories around

Hello guys,

I searched on google, and seems the edit issues / schedule issues are responsbile for the ability to move user stories around. but i'm very relectint to edit the permission. it's not clear to me what those do.

Edit issue indicate to me at least the ability to add descriptions, change the subject, add lables and basiclly do all that you can do as editing of an issue?

I only simply want users except PO to not be able to move an item from the product backlog to an active sprint. i still want them to be able to move issues - other than user stories - to other (not active sprints) 

I do not want any other issue permissions stuff to be impacted !

Thanks,

Hello Ahmed,

From the docs -

  • Restricting users from Ranking issues — Only users with the Schedule Issues and Edit Issues Project Permissions  are allowed to modify the Rank of issues in the backlog. If you would like to prevent users from doing this, restrict their Schedule Issues permissions.
  • Restricting users from adding/dragging issues into sprints — Only users with the Schedule Issues and Edit Issues Project Permissions can add/drag issues into sprints. If you would like to prevent users from doing this, restrict their Schedule Issues and/or Edit Issues permissions.

Thus, currently ranking and drag/drop of issues is dependent on "Schedule Issues and Edit Issues " permissions only

Also, since you have mentioned that 

 i still want them to be able to move issues - other than user stories - to other (not active sprints) 

Currently, in JIRA the permissions are events on actions(edit, move etc) they can't be configured based on issueType. Though by using some clever scripting and some other plugins you can implement some restrictions based on issueType. But implementing restrictions on drag and drop which don't exist out of the box would hamper the user experience.
