JIRA Structure: Disable checkbox "Allow changes via Structure" --> per default disabled

Kev August 15, 2023

Hello there

Is it possible to prevent changes through the structure when adding a generator per default? We would like to grant everyone on the team the ability to create structures. However, we have identified a potential issue: accidental updates to certain items (e.g. through drag & drop) could have a significant impact on our projects.

Hence, we are in search of a solution that allows everyone to create structures, but with the "allow changes via structure" option disabled and grayed out by default, making it unavailable for modification.

Thank you for your help

Hello @Kev 

You can disable the said option by default by adding a dark feature(you can find more information about it on our Wiki). And if users don't have the 'Control' or 'Automate' access to the structure with generators they won't be able to edit generators' configurations to enable this option.

But please note - such limitation doesn't apply to users' own structures - if a user created a structure, then they are this structure's owner and they have full access to its features including configurations of generators.

I hope this helps. If you have other questions about Structure, please reach out to us directly through our support portal.

Best regards,
