Dear John,

What issues are you facing with editing tickets? Are you using the
unstoppable plug in for Jira because if you are not using unstoppable
editing tickets will not be accessible to you. If you want to talk
about looking into using unstoppable you can email me off list and I
can educate you on the Unstoppable product which is made by my company
Addteq which is an Atlassian government solutions partner. Thanks.
