How to set different flows to different roles?


Can I set different flows to different flows under the same issue type?

For example: I want a QA personnel be allowed to move a bug from status 1 to 'closed' but prevent the developers from doing so.

Workflow is done by issue type, not by role.

But you can do what you need.   Build your workflow such that it supports all the transitions you need between status.  Then add "conditions" to it that only allow certain roles to do certain things.

For the example you've given, have a transition from 1 to 'closed' and add a condition for "user must be in the role of QA-personnel"

Thanks Nic for the quick reply.

Where do I find the conditions?

When you go to edit the workflow, you'll find it is a set of steps (labelled with their Status in both text and diagram mode) and transitions (the arrows between them in the diagram).  If you click on a transition, there will be a box with a set of tabs - conditions, validators, post-functions and triggers.  Hit the conditions one and you'll find an "add condition" button there.

Thanks Nic. You the man.

I did not notice it when created the flow. Will go there again and check.

Looks perfect.

I added two conditions:

Either if one of a roles


The creator of the bug.


Thanks Nic. You helped so much.
