Rule that blocks field editon

In Jira, restricting permissions regarding level of single field edit, in issue is not possible, but it seems to me that automation can allow to make some workaround.

I pondering is there possible to revert single field value, back to oryginal state before edition, if "Editor" which is editing that field of issue, does not belong to certain group?

Can it be done ? Any ideas?

Hi Jaromir,

Automation for Jira does not prevent any actions from taking place. That is done with Conditions and/or Validotors on the workflow. 

Automation rules only fire AFTER something has taken place - a field has been updated, the issue has transitioned to another status, a query was fired as a part of a scheduled run, etc. 

But a workaround might be to remove the field from the Edit screen for the project. Then create a new Transition screen with the field showing on this screen. 

Then create a new transition on the status that loops back to itself (called a Looping Transition).

Then attach the Transition screen to the new looping transition in the workflow. 

Then you can place conditions on this transition to control who can execute the transition that shows the screen with the field to be edited.
