Hi @n_banupriyanka 

This is very interesting use case.

  • What we can do is use a project role called "Issue Editors" or whatever makes sense.
  • Assign the Issue Edit permission to this role. Now anyone who is part of this role can edit the issues.
  • On the create transition, use a Post Script function to add reporter to this "Issue Editors" role.
  • Create a listeners for "Issue Assigned" event and run a script to remove current reporter from "Issue Editors" role.
  • You can keep the issue edit permission to current assignee.

This is what I can think of using ScriptRunner (on Jira Server).

I hope it helps.


Hi @Ravi Sagar 

Thank you for suggestion.

I am new with groovy script and I am having difficulties in writing a script.

Please help me with script.


Kind Regards,
