How to disable to edit a Closed issue in Cloud JIRA

I have been using Cloud JIRA (version: 1000.1010.2, build: 100044) now. I want to disable to edit a closed issue completely. However, I can change assignee field, add comment, edit description etc. on a closed issue now. How can I disable to perform those things on a closed issue completely?

Edit the workflow and place the "do not edit" workflow property (jira.issue.editable = false) on the "closed" status.

You can see an example of it if you look at the default JIRA workflow, and see https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/workflow-properties-802592825.html

Thank you for the info.

Still can add in Comments after putting in the workflow property jira.issue.editable = false.  Is there anyway to stop adding Comments after issue is closed?

yes. in the property, i added Property key = "jira.permission.comment.denied" and Property Value = " '' " (2 single quotation mark). Works for me :)

If the customer performs the comment via an email reply though, how would they know their comment has been stopped?
