Disable a Task when it's finished

Luiz Machado (1111) | asked Jul 07 '14, 1:20 p.m.
 Hi everyone.

I'd like to disable a task when it's done.
Example: if I completed/finished a task, I can't attach anything.

Is it possible?

short answer: yes.
In the process configuration of the project area on preconditions --> Work Items --> Save Work Item (server) you can add "Read-only attributes for Type and State" to the role of "everybody" to check for work item types per state which attributes should be read-only in that particular state. If you check all attributes for state of "done" that should get you close to what you want.
You also want to check the precondition on Change Set --> Save Change Set Links and Comments (Server) to enable "Restrict associating to closed work items" for role "everybody".

If this answers your question, please mark it accepted.
