Draft WI can only be edited by Submitter


Pankaj Sharma (40339) | asked Apr 26 '17, 11:15 a.m.

 Hello All,


I have a scenario where i have a Issue WI and the state transition happens form uninitialized -> Draft -> Submitted
The draft status is meant for saving the WI while all the information can be gathered and then it can be Submitted which changes the status to Submitted.

Is there any way I can restrict other users to edit or view the draft issue

Unless using some custom automation and access groups, you can not prevent others from seeing the work item.


RTC uses role based permissions to control modifications. There is no role "Submitter" or "Owner" etc. So you would have to create a customization to achieve this. https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2014/05/26/only-owner-can-close-workitem-advisor/ explains such a customization. Based on that example you could prevent any save if the save is issued in the draft state if it is issued by a user other than the submitter (check creator attribute).
