lock field in jira cloud

Noa Tsruya April 4, 2024

I would like to lock the description field when the issue transfer to X status.

so I created 3 deferent screens for create, edit and view screens.

In the create screen I have all the fields 

In the edit screen I removed the description field 

In the view screen I put the description field so people can jus see the value and not edit.

Now I would like to define specific project role who will be able to edit the description field, while the others could not be able.

How can I do that?

Hi Noa,

One option is to create a new transition screen where the only field on the screen is the Description field. 

Then add a self looping transition (transition goes from X status to itself). Place the new screen on that transition. Then add a Condition so that only certain people can execute the transition (and thereby only those people can update the Description field).
