Restrict Users To Open WorkItem

Sometimes you need to restrict users to use work items or make it obsolete. We can't delete a work item type from the process template, so we must find other ways. I didn't find a good solution for that issue.  (There is an article from MS, how to make a work item obsolete, but I needed other solution. read here:

You can do that by editing work item type definition for the type and setting permissions on the first transition:

<TRANSITION from="" to="Opened" for="YOUR DOMAIN\USER OR GROUP" >

That way, only authorized users can open work item of this type.
