Is it possible to prevent someone from executing a transition in workflow based on a time limit? I'd like to prevent the transition if it's, for example, after 12pm, but only if it's 12pm on the scheudled start date. My thoughts are to use a validator where the might look something like "Start Time" < startOfDay(+11h), but the syntax is not allowed.
Quick thought is you can do this via a Script Validator that validates the current time to allow the transition or not.
Another option which may be nicer for the users is to put the same logic into a scripted condition. A condition hides the transition from the user when they look at the issue, so they can't use it. A validator lets them start a transition, but pulls them up when they try to commit it.
A validator has the advantage that you can tell them why they can't do something, rather than have them ask you "why can't i do X to the issue?", but the disadvantage that they can get stroppy if they enter all their data only to be told they can't do it.
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 ...
