using the workflow transitions it is possible to disable commenting on an issue in certain statuses.
ie by putting jira.permission.comment.user = denied ...
Check the j-tricks blog on this subject
The disadvantage is that if the user wants to progress the issue to another status he/she will not be able to provide a comment (because the permission has been disabled)
Putting a transition specific permission (in the transition properties) doesn't do anything.
Any idea's how to fix this
add the following script in any field description on field configuraion of that issue type which is present on that transition by changing transition name on which you want hide the comment box
