Use jira.permission.comment.user = denied instead of false ;)

Did not work :(

What is the version of JIRA? I tested on JIRA 6.2.7 and it works.

My bad - it worked without any issue.

Setting the property either to false or denied work. On JIRA 6.3.9+, setting this property will prevent comments on transitions which go to the step/status with this property, due to the bug https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-40997.

jira.permission.comment.user = denied  

is not working for JIRA version 7.6.4, any idea ?

I try jira.permission.comment.user ->denied  and  works fine! in Jira 7.6.7

Does this apply also to properties of transitions too? I want to hide Comment field on the transition screen, but none of the Properties below didn't work (in Jira 7.8.2)

jira.permission.comment.denied = true

jira.permission.comment.user = false

jira.permission.comment.user = denied

Also, none of the other suggested solutions  with javascript etc. didn't work, it's quite weird that such simple thing as to hide field on the transition screen is so insanely complicated...
