Hi @Jae Hoon Koon _Jae Hoon Lim_,

Welcome to the community!

I will start by admitting that I'm by no means an expert when it comes to behaviours, however in an effort to try and find you an answer to this question, I dug into Adaptavist's documentation and found this:

It appears that you can write groovy script as your condition which in theory should allow you to write the same contents of what would be a JQL query.

I'm not sure if this will work for your particular use case, but it might be worth taking a look.

I hope that helps!

Could you be a little more specific in what you mean by 8sing JQL in Behaviours?  You can apply conditions based on fields similar to JQL.

Could you provide a use case of what you are trying to do?

Hi , 

Even I have the same concern where I am using Time to SLA for Jira  Plugin and ScriptRunner Plugin. 

Suppose I have SLA set - In Progress -> Review  ( SLA will start In Progress status and 

will be met in Review status )

My use case is I want comment to  be mandatory if SLA is breached for transitioning In Progress to Review  , so can we use scriptrunner behaviour feature ( applying jql condition )

Hello @Jagruti Mhetre 

I do not know much about using JQL in Behaviours but you can use slaFunction = isBreached() to achieve that.
