Revert Issue Type if user is not an admin

Christina Evans May 23, 2024

I need to be able to limit the ability for non-board admins from changing the issue type without removing the ability to change issue types from everyone. I already have the permission scheme limiting non-board admins from moving the issues. 

 

Any ideas?

Hi Christina,

First, board admins and the board have nothing to do with permissions to Move an issue or change the Issue Type. That is all in the Permission Scheme. 

If you have already change the Permissions to only allow certain users to Move issues that should take care of it. However, this will only work if there are different workflows for each issue type. Otherwise it is not a Move function but a simple update of the Issue Type field. 

If you want to go to that level, you can copy the workflow and rename each one so that there is a different workflow for each issue type.

You should be able to do this via automation and trigger it on issue change for the issue type. You can then check if the initiator have the right permissions and if not then change the issue type back. Please note that this would only work if all the issue types in your project are using the same workflow, if not then you are doing a move and is currently not possible to do in an automation.
