Can i validate previous status to execute rule when issue is transitioned?

I have a workflow than can go into statues like this:

A --> B

B --> C

A --> C


I only want to execute an automation rule when the issue is transitioned to C but only from B status. So I need to check to things in order to execute the rule:

(1) The issue transitioned to C

(2) The issue was transitioned from B

Thanks for the help!

Hi Sebastián,

To do this you can create a rule with the following:

  • Add a "Field value changed" trigger and listen for changes to the Status field
  • And a Compare condition to check for the previous value and current value.

It should look like this:

The value for the First field is:

{{fieldChange.fromString}} -> {{fieldChange.toString}}

Hope that is what you were after.



Thanks for the response @Nick Menere that work great.
