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 status: You 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."

Hi Mridula,

You will most likely need an add-on such as ScriptRunner for this.  There is a Communities post titled Validator script to check status of all linked issues before allowing transition that may help you achieve your goal.
