How to make "Add Attachment" read only at a particular state


Pravin Patil (104145134) | asked Feb 13 '17, 6:04 p.m.

There was a incident today in my project where in a developer added attachment even after the workitem was in closed state.

Is there a way to disable the "Links > Add Attachments" option if work item is in particular state (for e.g Closed)? Please let me know how can this be done?

I checked the precondition "Read-Only attribute for type and state", but dont see the attribute for "attachment" or "links" in there.

 You can use "Prevent Editing" pre-condition.
