I would like to allow editing each checkbox but not all users should be allowed to add new items to the checklist.
Is there a way to set permissions. I had a look if there is a way with script runner but wasn't successfull.
According to https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-1330 there is no way to set permissions for a field in jira. Using script runner you can block users from selecting or deselecting the checkList but as you mentioned you cannot restrict admin users from adding new options in the custom field. I do not know if there are any add-ons that offer this functionality.
Really sorry for the late reply. I missed your question (sometimes I do not get all the notifications).
You can actually restrict who can add/remove items to the checklist in the issue view. You can do this by creating a new role (or using an existing one) and then selecting it in the "Edit Roles" option from the Checklist Configuration page. Everyone will then be able to check/uncheck items but only those with the selected role will be able to add/remove items.
