Conditions for moving a card on the board

Hi everyone!

Is there any way within JIRA to not allow cards to transition if they have a flag or if the min/max is full? Help me, please!

Hi Emerson,

You should be able to place a Validator or Condition on the transition for the Flagged field. 

And while you can't directly do that with the min/max, you could do a work around where you create a custom number field and then increment it or decrease it whenever an issue is moved into or out of the status associated with the column. Then place a validator or condition on the transition based on the value in this custom field. 

Hi John,

I haven't found the Validator or Condition that fits, but I'll keep exploring. As for the min/max, would it be nice to have? Undoubtedly! But I can live without it.

Thanks a lot for helping me!

What exactly are you trying to do? And won't one fit? Can you provide more details?

I want to block the transition on the board of a card if it has a flag. And it can only be moved if the flag is removed.

The Validator and Conditional options shows me some options, but I don't know if any of them matches.

You should be able to add a Condition for Value field. Then choose Flagged and != null. It would look like this:

Worked when I made "Flagged = null".

Thanks a lot, @John Funk! I couldn't do it without your help!

Hey @Emerson there is no out-of-the box way to do this as JIRA does not allow you to use column max constraint as a condition in transition conditions or in automation. 

Hey @Marta Woźniak-Semeniuk this is why I dislike JIRA sometimes hahahahaha.

Thanks for helping me!
