Workflow Properties to Only Allow "Automation for Jira" User Edit Access

I've been trying to restrict edit access for issues at a specific status via the Workflow status properties.  I can't seem to figure out what to add to give the "Automation for Jira" user edit access.

I've tried both (not at the same time):

  • jira.permission.edit.user = Automation for Jira
  • jira.permission.edit.user = 557058:f58131cb-b67d-43c7-b30d-6b58d40bd077

Neither seem to work.  I've confirmed that "Automation for Jira" is able to edit the respective issues when I have no properties set.  But when I set these properties to try to restrict edit access to ONLY "Automation for Jira", nothing is able to edit the respective issues - including the "Automation for Jira" user.

Something I'm missing?

You have to use

Key: jira.permission.edit.projectrole

Value: ID of the project role of "atlassian-addons-project-access"

This was perfect and took me way too long to find.  I could not get these specifics from any of the Atlassian documentation I found.  To me it would seem that 'Value' information like this should be easier to find.

The right Automation for Jira ID can get from Quickfilter assignee = Automation for Jira.
Your number format looks correct. 

Actor of the Automation rule = Automation for Jira.

I tested few cases, it looks this works.

I have same need as described initially as Secure level adding is not the choice (Issues must be visible for any project user, but editable for 1 project role (this is clear how to do) and for Automation for Jira only).  

Hi @Will Thompson

Try this in status property

Property Key: jira.permission.assign.assignee

Property Value: assignee

Hi @Imdad KP

I'm curious, what would this do?  The "Automation for Jira" user is not the assignee for the issue (and I don't want to make it the assignee).

Hi @Will Thompson

Can you share the screenshot of the configurations you have created? Then, I can share the exact configuration that I have mentioned above.

Not sure what this screenshot will tell you that my original post didn't, but here you go:

I ended up getting close enough to what I need for now using Security Levels.  It's not perfect and I may need to revisit this in the future, but I'm going to call it good enough for now.
