We have JIRA for the Cloud and are wondering if we can limit the creation of and Epic type to only a certain group?

Thank you

I'm not sure they answer my question because in the response,"In the post-function of the "create" transition of the issue workflow you can add validations to check if the user belongs to the group which can create the task issues or vice-versa"  The way permissions are broken down is if a person can create an issue type, he can create ALL issue types including Epics.  We want to limit a group to create all BUT Epics. If this can happen "out of the box" then fine but if programming or scripting is involved then it might not be a viable solution for us.

Please advise.

Yes, that's the point of the answer.  Off the shelf, you can't configure this - if a user can create, they can create.  But you can set up a workflow that fails a validator and hence stops someone creating a certain type. 

Which validator checks the issue type against a group?

There aren't any.  What you want is to check that the user matches a group.  I don't know if there are validators available on Cloud that can do that.

I use the validator user in the field (reporter) should be at least in one of the project roles (admin, PM) on the create issue . It worked for jira server.
