How to remove flag on transition in Jira 8.22.2

I want to remove the flag of an issue in a post function of a transition. Having read through the forums I found it should be a field called "flagged". My problem: There is no such field. Neither JSU nor JMWE find a field with this name. I tried different German translations (as we are using Jira in German) but could not find anything. I supsect the field has been renamed through the versions as articles referencing this field are from 2015 and 2016.

Then I tried to use groovy code with Scriptrunner. But I could not find the corresponding field here either.

Any ideas?

Finally found it: In German the field name is "Markiert" and the value is "Hindernis".


Way to find this for other languages: Take an issue, flag it and view the change history of that issue - this will reveal the actual name of the issue.

By default, it's a checkbox with one value, which is Impediment in English.

(The JQL to find any flagged tickets is Flagged = Impediment)


Hope you find the German version!

Thank you Danielle, that was useful on the way finding the correct field name as I knew what to look for in issue change history.

The hint with the change history came from Atlassian support.
