It is now possible to restrict the deletion of issues using field="Delete" in a Project workflow. As with other available restriction options, you can set this for a specific workflow status or all workflow statuses.
Example of Issue Deletion Not Allowed If Issue's Status=Closed
<Workflow initialStatus="Started"> <Status name="Started"> <NextStatuses> <NextStatus name="Closed"/> </NextStatuses> </Status> <Status name="Closed"> <Restrictions> <Restriction field="Delete" test="false"/> </Restrictions> </Status> </Workflow>
The Delete option will be grayed out for users.
