How to configure my workflow approval step to go to different statuses based on a custom field value


I have a workflow that 'branches' based on a custom field called "Approval Level".  I would like to use the approval step on a status that could go to 2 different statuses based on the Approval Level.  But I can't see how to set the approval step to honor the Approval Level custom field and go to the correct destination status when approved.

For instance,

  • If Approval Level = L1
    • My workflow goes from Awaiting Level1 Approval -> Awaiting Comp Agreement when Awaiting Level1 Approval is approved.
  • If Approval Level = L2
    • My workflow goes from Awaiting Level1 Approval -> Awaiting Level2 Approval when Awaiting Level1 Approval is approved.
    • Then, when Awaiting Level2 Approval is approved, my workflow goes to Awaiting Comp Agreement.

Is it possible to set up the approval steps to be dynamic?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Hi @Allison Stewart 

You can't do that unfortunately out of the box. You can only have one approve transition and one rejected.

Perhaps with ScriptRunner?

You could create your "own" approvals with custom field, but these will not use the jira built in approval system. I don't think that scriptrunner is capable of messing around with this functionality.
