How to configure workflow to allow a specific person only to perform certain workflow transition

I want to allow a specific person only to perform certain workflow transition. How can I perform this?

Is there any way to perform this? e.g. by Script Runner or other?

A script could do it, but it might be possible with basic conditions or add-ons that provide condtions too.

The main question is "who?".  How are you identifying the person who is allowed to do the transition?

Worst case, it's just "this person", but I'd lean towards "person in role", so it's flexible (and off-the-shelf), or maybe "people in group".

I want to allow a specific person only by defineing JIRA user name (e.g. xxxxx.yyyyy) to allow

certain workflow transition. e.g. only case current user is "xxxxx.yyyyy"). How can I perform this by Script Runner or other way?

I strongly suggest you use a group or role and only put that one person in it. When or if they leave or on vacation you can easily put someone else in their place. It is the same guideline as security, never give access to people. Give it to groups/roles and move people in and out of the groups/roles.

Have you looked at the "add condition" function in the workflow editor?  Where there is a list of conditions you can add, including "only user in role", "only user in group" and "only user".

I'm not sure why you're asking about scripting when there's all those options built-in.


Thank you for all of your comments. Will use 'only user in project role'.
