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 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.
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 ...
