jira.permission.attachdeleteown.reporter=denied workflow step property not working


can anybody help me in implementing a workflow step property i.e.(jira.permission.attachdeleteown.reporter=denied). Actualy I have added the restriction in permission schimer i.e. Delete Own Attachments = Reporter and in the workflow step I have added a property i.e.(jira.permission.attachdeleteown.reporter=denied) and now if the issues is in that workflow step and a reported try to delete any attachment it should not allow to do so but a reporter is still able to delete the attachment in that workflow step.

I will be glad if any body can help me in fixing this.

Try using jira.permission.attachdeleteown.group using an inexistent group, or to another role. This way the reporter also won't be able to edit this. I've created a bug report as this indeed doesn't seem to be working: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-38878

Let me known if this helps.

Hi Matheus,

Thanks very much for your suggestion. The workaround works for us.



Check if the workflow changes are published.

I have tried publishing the changes but it didn't work


Looks like the attachdeleteown and attachdeleteall are not working in latest version of JIRA. Can you tell me what version are you using?

Probably you should raise a ticket to support.atlassian.com


I tried to do thesame thing on 6.1.3 and on 6.2.7, it didnt work. I would suggest to open a support ticket.


We are on Jira version v6.2.1
