Incident Overview Status Field

Friday, August 30, 2013

We have set a workflow for incidents within SpiraTest however it looks like a user with the appropriate privileges can actually edit the status of Incidents at the table overview bypassing the workflow. Is there a setting somewhere to turn this off?

Hi Hamzah

Absolutely, just give that user 'Modify Owned' permissions instead of 'Modify All' and it will prevent them bypassing workflow on the incident list page.

Hi Adam,

Thanks, that did the trick although I'm in two minds as to whether it would have been nicer to have a way to only disable to 'Status' column in that view. We can assign that to the project owner / admin so it's not too much of a problem.

This feature is causing us major issues across all of our projects also.  We need to have a third option in addition to Modify All and Modify Own.  That option needs to be able to change the owner of the incident and add comments but NOT edit from the list view.  We have development leads that need this capability as they review all of the incidents assigned to their team members, update them with comments, and reassign them to another developer.  Since we have on-shore and off-shore developers, the person who currently owns the incident is not always available to make these updates.
