jira.permission.comment Questions


Hello all.


I have a workflow that I would like to block comments on a certain status and only allow comment within certain transitions.

Within the workflow, I have added the follwoing to a status.

Status - IN REVIEW
Status properties

jira.permission.comment.denied = ''

This works as expected.

Now I want to Transition to a status of REJECTED and present the comment screen on transition.  So I tried adding the following to the transition.

jira.permission.comment.assignee = true


The result is this.



Any ideas on how to go about this?

Hi @Mark Almeida-Cardy

currently I'm trying to hide the comment section on a transition screen. This is not possible by configuration, so I thought about jira.permission.comment.denied and saw your post here.

I didn't get this solved, but on your screenshot I see a screen without a comment section. How did you achieve this?

When I'm adding jira.permission.comment.denied to the screen a comment will not be saved, but the section is still visible.

Thanks for your hint here!

Looks like you made a typo

jira.permission.comment.assignee = true

Ah yes.  thank you for that.  Typo corrected but I still have the same results.

Is my approach to this correct?

Just please, remove that attribute, if you want to show comment screen

and define the screen for that transition

Thank you for your suggestions so far.


When you suggest to "remove that attribute" which one are you referring to?


With the following applied on the status, comments are not possible (as desired)

jira.permission.comment.denied = ''


However, I was hoping that applying the following on the transition would allow for the assignee to add a comment on the transition screen.

jira.permission.comment.assignee = true

However, this does not work.
