Hide transition if assignee and reporter are the same user

Daria Pavlova May 19, 2023

Hi colleagues!


I want two transitions for my workflow

1. Cancel - available for assignee only

2. Cancel and close - available for reporter only

but when you're both reporter and assignee you see all of these transitions and for some of our coworkers it might be confusing

is there any way to configure a condition to hide 'cancel' transition when assignee =! reporter?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hello @Daria Pavlova ,

I think there is some typo in your requirement. Because if you configure a condition to hide 'cancel' transition when assignee =! reporter, that means the assignee will never see 'cancel' transition, but when the assignee and reporter are the same, both transitions will be available. 
So I think you need a condition if assignee = reporter hide 'cancel' (or 'Cancel and close')so only one of those is available. 

If you have Power Scripts app in your Jira , you can configure 'Power Scripts SIL Condition' on 'Cancel' transition (or 'Cancel and close' - depending on which one should be not available if the assignee and reporter are the same )  with the following script: 

if( assignee == reporter ) 
return false;

 Adding also some documentation about it

Best regards,
