Setting create issue security

I have a single project with 3 issue types x,y,z. I want to restrict creation of issues on two of the issue types. EG. I only want users in the role "iQS Managers" to be able to create issue types y and z, where issue type x is open to everyone for creation. Is this possible?

It is not possible. See a lengthy discussion and possible workarounds on

Create two workflows based on issue type & apply appropriate conditions in create issue permissions.

I've created 3 separate work flows. I guess my question is how exactly do I limit creation of the issue on the validators or post functions options? I added a post function which states that if a member is part of iQS Managers role then the issue security level is set to Managers, however this still doesn't prevent users from that group from creating the issues

You should add permission in validators, not in post functions.
