Need help on validators and conditions of workflow


Hi Team,
Below is my requirement,

Custom Field: Review Required – Yes/No

Custom Field: Review Leader – One person based on Role

Custom Field: Approved -> Yes/No (Review Leader has to choose this)

If a user choose Review Required as Yes then it should go from In progress -> In Review.

If a user choose Review Required as No then it should go from In progress -> Done

If the Review Leaded choose, approved as Yes then it should go from "In Review -> Done"

If the Review Leaded choose, approved as No then it should go from "In Review -> In progress"



Please someone help me to achieve this.

Hi @rbalamu2  - What type of project is this? 

Hi @John Funk It is company managed scrum project.

Can you help me by screen share please.



John Funk Community Leader Aug 09, 2022

I can't do a screen share, but you can build it. 

Go to Settings > Issues > Workflows

Search for the Workflow you want to change.

Click on the 3 dots menu under the Actions heading and select Edit.

Make sure you are on the Diagram view and not the Text view.

Click on the Transition between In Progress and Done statuses.

Then click on the Conditions link on the right in the popup.

Click Add Condition. This will open a new tab in your browser.

Select Value Field and click the Add button

Select your Review Required custom field. Then = and then type No

Then click Add.

Now click on the transition from In Progress to In Review.

Do the same thing as above, but type Yes instead of No

Let's do that part first. Be sure to save and publish the workflow. Then test that part. 

Hi @John Funk ,
Thanks for your help. when I add both the conditions, if I didn't choose yes/No in review required, The transition shows you don't have permission for the transition. how do we handle that?

You can add another Condition to the transition from In Progress to Done that has the Review Required field != empty (I think you choose != and then just leave the value field blank.
