I'm curious if there is such a permission, esp with regards to the 6.x rapid boards. Can I prevent certain users from dragging the backlog items around, since in scrum theory, no one should ever do so but the product owner?
I just tried it out (in 6.0.1) - this is exactly what you meant!
When users don't have the "Schedule Issue" permission they cannot drag things around on the planningboard/backlog - if they try, they get the message:
You do not have permission to rank issue 'TST-101' [ID: 31,070]. To rank an issue, you must have the schedule permission on that issue.
Oh sorry ;)
You might be right, however, this permission seems above and beyond simply rearranging the backlog items:
In 5.x there was an option called "Scheduling Permission" (Use the Schedule Issues rather than the Resolve Issues permission for scheduling issues within GreenHopper), but I think this is gone in 6.x
And tying it to the resolve issue permission makes even less sense in my eyes...
ps: Could you kindly remove the negative vote above ;)
It's still there, not sure applicable only to the now "Classic" boards or to the default (was "rapid board"). But either of those permissions prevent a user from doing a lot more than just backlog sorting.
Oh, and I have tried undoing the negative vote but I keep getting a "system error" prompt. I'll keep trying. Apologies..
