While assigning permissions, we want the jira to work along with the statuses. Is it possible by JIRA

For example, a defect is in 'In Development' status, only a developer should have access to move it to next status. Testers should not have access to the same.


In the same way for 'In testing' status only testers should have access to move to the immediate next status called 'done/closed'. Developers should not be able to perform this.


Can I achieve this via JIRA? If yes let me know how.

Yes you can. What you need is to edit your workflow accordingly.


Edit workflow => Edit each transition => Add Condition => 

Condition to allow only users in a given group to execute a transition.

Yes, you can. Use a Condtion (User in Role) in the workflow for that transition (In Testing to Done and In Testing to Closed). So only Tester can do this transition.
