How to allow issue movement but only to certain statuses?

As a JIRA admin, how can I restrict the below underlined action for users? 

 

Issue statusYou may have set up custom issue statuses as part of a workflow. If you have assigned a custom status to your issue, and it does not exist in your target project, you must select a new issue status for your issue. You cannot arbitrarily change the issue status, i.e. the option to change the issue status will only appear if you are required to change it.

There's nothing here to "restrict".  If you move an issue to a new config that does not match the old config, you must migrate it to the new one.

If you want to stop people moving issues though, just remove their "move issue" permission.

Hi @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]

Thanks for your answer. Allow me to rephrase my question: 

I am looking to only allow users move from Issue Type (A,B or C) to Issue Type (D) with Status (I). 
I want to disable users from moving issues to other statuses for Issue Type D. 

Is there a way to do this? 

Thanks,

Mridula

No.  A user can either move an issue or they can't.  You can't restrict what status they choose if the workflows are different.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
