Blocking a transition if an inward link is present


I know we can enable a transition if a record as at least one outward link is present, using Script Runner's post function.

Is there any work around to BLOCK a transition if the record has at least one inward link is present ?

Can Script Runner help on this ?

Thanks, Vishnu.

Work out what the code is to allow it, then put an exclamation mark on the front to negate it. Eg:

! issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId()).any { == "Escalated From"}

Thanks a lot Jamie.

Hey Vishnu,

See the documentation at

Use a condition like

issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.getId()).size() > 0

Hi Bhushan

Thanks for the suggestion.

Will this condition allow the transition or block it ? I think it allows.

Also, can I specifically check for a link type not present, say 'Escalted from' ?


Basically, I am looking for something like "" operation. Is is available ?

Thanks, Vishnu.
