Restricting Rank privillages

We use the Rank functionality but I want to limit the ability to set and change the Rank to only the Product Owner and Scrum Master so that no one else can get their fingers in and move things around.

Cant seem to find a way of doing it, must be possbile???

Hi Mark,

At the moment Ranking is restricted by the Schedule Issues permission in Jira. You could potentially restrict this permission just to the business users for the Agile projects that you do not want others touching. In addition any changes to the rank (and who performed them) will be shown in the history for the issue.

We are looking in to the possibility of offering a different permission but can't confirm any time frame.

Wont fix! Cant believe it's not in there already!

What does everyone else do then? If you want the Business to be the only ones to Rank items do you just trust everyone else in the company not to move things around?

Thanks Shaun

The schedule issue permission and restricting that might just work for me!
