How to make field user picker form issue to be permissian condition for move link issue field

Hi Guys,

I have 2 issuetype, Story and bugs

I used field IT Problem Manager (user picker (multiple users)) in story,

than I linked Story to Bugs.

What I want, issue bugs can move status by users in field IT Problem Manager 


I make script in JMWE in workflow Bugs

user.displayName == linkedIssue.customfield_12441[0].displayName


test results : 

- Scenario 1 :

if I input user A in field IT Problem Manager in story

user A can move status in issue bugs, and user B can't move status


- Scenario 2 :

if I input user A an user B in field IT Problem Manager in story

user A or user B can't move status in issue bugs


what I want make script to make Scenario 2 work used (user picker (multiple users)) from linked issue 


what should I do?

Hi @Tyas Iglecias ,

I think the problem is that you are checking for equaltiy, so the username must match the content of the field.

Assuming that linkedIssue.customfield_12441[0].displayName returns a String containing both user Names,  you can try something like this (I couldn't test it currently)


This checks, if the String returned from the field contains the Display Name.

Hi @Bastian Stehmann 


thanks for your help

I tried the script, but it doesn't work



please check my configuration, is somethink I missed?



Hy Tias,


sorry for the delay, I had now some time to try myself.

I think, we need another approach here. Can you try this one:


.filter(u => u.displayName == user.displayName)
.length > 0
