How can I restrict transition of a status to 'Release' to a specific user group only?

I  need only specific users to be able to transition the status of a task from 'code review' to   'Release'. How can I do that? I saw the link below that talks about creating a specific user group and limiting them from making a workflow status change by editing the "properties"  in the workflow scheme for that particular status. However, this is not working for me. 

Hoping someone can help with the correct implementation design for this need. thanks

Simply add a condition to the workflow transition.

I'm sorry, how do I do that?

This is basic workflow editing. Is it possible you should ask an administrator in your system instead?

Regardless, it is documented here:

Got it and I am the admin :)!
