Can I restrict a user to use a transition?

I wanted that in a specific transition all users could run it except for a few specific users.

I tried using the jira properties for this (! = Test), but I didn't work.

Is there any way to do this?

Hi @artur.l.ext 

Welcome to the Community!

This is possible - the attached guide has a section on Conditions which should help:

If you need any help, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Hi @Liam Green

I can't find a transition that makes it possible for all users to do anything except one user or more. I found only conditions that only groups or users can do, but I didn't find conditions where groups or users can't do one transition. I have 300 or more users and all day I add or remove user and if I use this transition, I would have add and remove user from a group or in transition. Can you help me?

Regards, Artur

Hi @artur.l.ext 

If there are only a few users that you do not want to run the transition then you will need to add all users to a group apart from the users who should not run the transition.

What you could then do is have all users automatically join the group when you create them - then you can just remove them if needed.

Secondly, you could try an add on from the Marketplace.  I think Jira Misc Workflow Extensions would work for you - but I don't have any first hand experience, so couldn't say for certain:

Hope that helps,

Regards, Liam

I confirm, you can do this with a "Build-your-own" Condition from JMWE for Jira Cloud, with a script like this:

!["account ID","account ID"].includes(user.accountId)

where "account ID" is the accountId of the forbidden users. You can lookup the accountId for users using the "Lookup user..." button on the editor's toolbar.
