Based on CheckBox validation, need to run post function (Run a Transition)

I have a Custom field which is of type CheckBox.

What i want is, if all options of that checkbox custom field are selected, then only that post function should run.


Could some one please help me

What should the post function exactly do?

I personally would use Scriptrunner add-on. It has many build in post functions: See:

Post Function will run a hidden transition based on condition being true. 


Condition is checkbox field shall have all the options ticked.

So need to create a groovy expression for checking that all options are ticked in the custom field 




def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customFields = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue)
customFields.each {cf ->
if ( == '<CUSTOMFIELDNAME>' ) {
return true;
} else {
return false;


*It is not working* 



Have you tried Alexeys corrected code snippet?

def customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()
def customFields = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue)
def values = []
customFields.each {cf -&gt;
   if (cf.getName() =~ "Check_" &amp;&amp; cf.getCustomFieldType().getName() == "Multi Checkboxes") {
     values += cf.getValue(issue)*.toString()
def validChecks = ['CFO', 'CTO'] //add all your required options here
return values.containsAll(validChecks) ? true : false

It gives an error that 

Spread Operator can be used only on Collection type



Hmm, how many options do you have?

You could check on each:

cfValues['&lt;Your Field&gt;']*.value in ['Option1', 'Option2', ...]

or maybe

cfValues['&lt;Your Field&gt;']*.value.contains("Option1") &amp;&amp;
cfValues['&lt;Your Field&gt;']*.value.contains("Option2") &amp;&amp;
