Add workflow condition programmatically Edited

Greetings community,

I want to programmatically add a simple conditon to my workflow, something like "Only users in project role Administrators can execute this transition."

I know this is possible for post-functions with
FunctionDescriptor functionDescriptor = workflowFunctionDescriptorFactory.updateIssueField(...);

and it should work for conditions analogously with
ConditionDescriptor conditionDescriptor = workflowConditionDescriptorFactory.permission(ProjectPermissionKey key);

but I can't get my head around how to create the PermissionKey.

Is the ProjectPermissionKey the right concept to begin with, or do I need something else?


Tanks in advance!

After some digging, I came up with this solution:

ConditionDescriptor conditionDescriptor = DescriptorFactory.getFactory().createConditionDescriptor();
final Map conditionArgs = conditionDescriptor.getArgs();

conditionArgs.put("", "com.atlassian.jira.workflow.condition.InProjectRoleCondition");
conditionArgs.put("", "10002");

Im pretty sure there should be an already existing method to do this, but even after hours of searching, I was not able to find it. If someone coincidentally stumbles over it, please enlighten me.

Hi Johannes,

Thank you for this useful information. 

Did you try to add a subtask condition to a transition ? If so, could you share how you did it ?
