I am trying to lock user stories for a workflow and allow a specific user to still be able to edit it. I came across this documentation and I tried adding jira.permission.edit.user as the property key and value as a name of the user (Also tried using an ID) but it didn't work. It locks the requirement for that specific user as well.
Just wondering what value of a user should I add to allow him/her to be able to edit it.
Thanks for your reply and the suggestion. I have tried using this numerous times by using the Property Key = jira.permission.edit.user and Property Value: athar. This doesn't work for some reason. It locks me out of editing the particular issue type as well. Please note I am not using jira.issue.editable property for any status in the workflow.
That's interesting that isn't working. If you remove that property are you able to edit the issue again?
Can you also confirm there are no spaces or anything in the property value? It has to match the username exactly as it is shown in User Management. If it is locking your access to the issue through this property, I suspect the property key is working as we want, but the property value isn't matching somehow. So we might just need to run down what is causing that behavior.
I didn't have an access to user management and tried using my first name, surname, fullname and ID to make it work. Just found my username through activity feed which is a 30ish long character (Maybe a username was never setup). It worked and the issue was open for me to edit and no one else could edit it.
Thank you for your help on this :)
