I have business-side users requesting view-only access to development projects. We want them to be able to view the boards, see where issues are in the workflow, etc. but not be able to edit issues, change status, etc.
If I give them the browse projects permissions, they can change issue status (which we do not want).
Depending on the number of workflows you use (and the number of transitions in them), a possible solution would be to ensure all the transitions have conditions or validators that only allow users that you dictate to have the ability to use those transitions.
Thanks Natalie. Based on your suggestion and looking at transitions, it seems I can do this via a condition that limits execution of the transition based on the user's group or role which is exactly what I was looking for. Too bad JIRA just doesn't have a "look but don't touch" permission that would make all of this unnecessary!
