Is it possible to prevent some roles from adding/removing Approvers

Prasad Makkena (179) | asked Nov 20 '19, 1:53 a.m.

 There is an action in the permission list under Work Items - Save Work Item - Modify the Work Item called "Modify the work item's approvals". If we set this to No for some roles Like(everyone or Team members ), will that prevent them to removing approvers from work items.

For example:While creating the work item in RTC, All roles (Developers) should be able to add approvers, but once an approver is there we would want a way to restrict team members from removing the approver.

 The permission would only allow or prevent. There is, as far as I know, no conditional behavior like you describe. To do that, you would require to code a custom pre-condition/advisor.

It is always a good idea to have a test system and to try this out, if you are not sure.
