Resolution: Affected version:3.4.2


I have 2 roles and 1 tracker:
  • first one does not have permission edit_issues at all, it has no any workflow field permissions configured;
  • second has permission edit_issues, but there is a workflow field permission, where some fields is in readonly state for my tracker and that role (in all statuses).

When user has both roles for project he CAN edit this readonly fields until I create same workflow field permissions to first role. Is this correct? I think, workflow field permissions should be found only among roles that have edit_issues permission.

Role-permission-tracker configuration maybe should also be taken into account.

We have this bug too and it's important for us to be resolve.

+1, we have same issue. We do have users with few Roles and Field Permissions just do not work if user/group has more than one permission.

Any workaround for this issue?
