I would like to only allow closing an issue if it is not Linked to a certain Epic. I am trying to use the Value Field condition to do this and have no idea what kind of comparison I should be doing. The Epic has an issue number of CG-6894, short name "Dealer Tools/Dashboard", and Epic Name of "Dealer Tools, reporting, dashboard". I have tried all of the following and none seem to work:
The last one actually blocks transition of all Issues regardless of the Epic Link. What kind of value and comparison type should I be using to place a condition on the Epic Link field?
Support answered it for me. Apparently you need to use an Option ID comparison and sniff our the ID by looking at URLs:

I've performed some tests and in fact it doesn't seem that JIRA is comparing the Epic Link / Name as String. I found that the best way to have that accomplished is using 'Option ID' instead. To find an issue/epic ID, open the issue and mouse over the "Edit" button. Look at the displayed URL at the bottom of the page.
I hope it helps
