I would like to restrict the "Administration" (edit) of metadata to a certain project role.
Per default, administrators of a project do have permission to edit metadata, which is fine.
But in or case, most of the users are administrators, because they need to be able to create versions.
I would like to be able to overwrite this permission, so that only a certain group can edit values.
This could be achieved by adding a key:
There is a risk of a deadlock situation, if no one is a member of this projectrole and also if this key is hidden and you dont know which value it got.
Therefore I would suggest to show this information either in the help text or next to the title of the tab: "this panel is managed by ProjectRole".
As said, if this key isn't set to any parameter, the default applies, which allows Administrators to modify it.
i have to think about this feature request. Currently I do not like it, because of the deadlock risk and the user requires the "Administer Projects" Permission (see: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Project+Permissions) to change the metadata.
