Condition to execute transition with previous status

Hello community, I am needing help creating an automation.

- I have the following workflow, I need to add a conditional in the automation that allows me to transition from the "TAKING EXAM" state to the state marked with the letter C or D


- The condition must be: if the issue passed through state B at some point in the workflow, then transition to state D

Is there any JQL search or smart value to apply that condition?

Note: the conditional is already configured in the WORKFLOW, but I need to specify it in an automation.

I have the automation set up as follows, but I am open to reading your opinions:

Hello @Dario Alarcón 

Looking at the first image in your original post you could modify the JQL in the trigger to include

AND status WAS "Certification Attempt 2 Planned"

That will result in limiting your selection to the issue that did, indeed, exist in the B status at some point in the past.

If you don't want the clause within the Trigger then you can add it as a Condition thus

@Trudy Claspill thanks for your help!

I was able to solve it. 🙌🙌🙌

I was thinking of using the following "if" block: Advanced compare condition
But I don't know how to write the smart value referring to state "B"
