What is difference between jira.permission.edit and jira.issue.editable workflow properties?

Are there any difference for jira issue where set one or another of these properties?

Hi Alexey,

jira.issue.editable= true/false means, that the issue is editable

jira.permission.edit.group= <any jira group> means, that only users belonging to this group are able to edit the issue

Hi Thomas, thank you for your reply.

I need to restrict jira issue edit mode and I tried the following values:

1) Property: jira.permission.edit.denied

    Key: denied

2) Property: jira.issue.editable

    Key: false

So as I can see in 1st variant there is available "Attach files" option. In 2nd variant "Attach files" option is unavailable.

Are there any other differences in these cases?

I would always use "jira.issue.editable" if you want to prohibit editing issues completely in a certain workflow state. Before you mentioned it, I didn't even knew the property "jira.permission.edit.denied".  So, no, I don't know the differences between them. 

If you want to restrict editing to a group. e.g. administrators, I would use "jira.permission.edit.group".
