How to disable the inline edition mode on a JIRA custom field ?

Hi all,

I have a plugin which embed a specific customfield type. This customfield type extends the TextCFType from JIRA and when I go on the 'issue-view' screen, the inline edition mode is automatically enabled...I would like to disable it on my customfield type. How can I do that ?

Thanks for your help

This widget could not be displayed.

You can't do that for a single field, atleast for now!

Even in the JIRA API, there is no way to disable this possibility ?

I haven't seen one but I could be wrong!

It will be good thing to do a control at custom field level. Hope Atlassian is listening ;)

Not that I can find - the functionality lies outside the custom field implementation, so you'd have to go digging through core code to enable it (i.e. not a plugin). You can, of course, turn it off completely for all fields, but that's your only option at the moment.

There was some discussion about it at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/49613/jira-5-1-inline-editing-how-this-will-work-for-you - by field configuration was suggested, but I don't think it was picked up - Atlassian responded with a very "we're still thinking about how to deal with the problems we didn't realise we'd caused" message.

Allright, thank you both for your answers.
