Cant drag a issue into a column if there are more than X issues in that column

Hi all


my team had a retrospective today, the issue is that they often drag issues from To-Do lane to In-progress lane without looking at the Review lane.


So they have this question:

- Is it possible to have a blocker to drag issues into ToDo if there are amount X in the review lane? So they have to clear the review lane before they take on new tasks?


I've looked into the automation rules, but I couldn't find any solutions there.

Does anyone have some solutions?



best regard

Hi Mikel,

You might be able to do that by placing a custom validator on the transitions using JMWE or ScriptRunner.
