Hidding the transition for everyone except for 2 groups


I would like to hide transition for everyone except for the groups "Change Managers" and "Process Supervisors". I guess via script and conditions it should be possible somehow. Any ideas about the code and how to get it done?

You don't even need script-runner for this - the condition "user is in group" is present in off-the-shelf JIRA.

I know about that and I use it often, maybe I should have given the more detailed explanation. In this particular case all the users are able to do transitions, because I have automatic Sub-Task blocking conditions system up, and in most cases transitions are automatic, etc. But when the ticket doesn't get automatically transitioned, I have this hole in my system that transition becomes visible to everyone which is not good. When I place "User is in group" condition, automatic system stops working sadly, that's why I wanted to simply hide the transition from everyone who isn't supposed to do it when it comes to "manual situation" Cheers, Rok

Would it be possible to see this via a screenshot? I think I have an understanding of what your issue is but I'm not sure where the "hole" comes from.

Yes, it would have been useful to tell us the full situation. I think this is a complex setup and you need to show us the conditions on this transition in full.

Hi Rock, 

maybe this is what you need: 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserUtil
// get users groups
def curUserGroups = ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil().getGroupNamesForUser(curUser.getName())
if (curUserGroups.contains("group1") || curUserGroups.contains("group2")) {
	// do something (return true) 
} else {
	// do something different (return false)

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Mario 

Thanx man :), I'll check into it!
