Condition: only assignee can change status from "in progress" to "open"

Hi, friends! I need help.

I am new to Jira administration and try to code a "listnerer" by Groovy.

How to create a condition so that only the assignee of the issuse could change the status from "in progress" to "open"? And also what libraries should be connected for this?

I would be grateful for your help!

Easiest way is to set the condition in your workflow.  Im not positive on the libraries but this is the simplest method.

  1. Go into your workflow
  2. select the issue type / workflow to modify
  3. Select the transition you want to set this condition up on
  4. Click conditions
  5. Add new condition
  6. Select the "Only Assignee Condition"



Thanks very much, Julian!
I will use that tommorow day

As @Julian G mention you can do this without any script and you don't need any app for this functionality.


tnx, Ravi!
