Can you do a validation on a transition on component lead

I want to do a validation that only a person who is a component lead can do a transition when an issue has a component with that lead. Like an approval for that particular piece of work (which the component is). Is that possible?

Hi Marteen

You can do this using the Power Scripts add-on.

There is a video tutorial walking you through in detail here.

Here is the code:

string [] comp = component;
boolean pass = false;

string errorMsg = "You can only have a single component assigned to this issue";

if(arraySize(comp) > 1) {
    return false, "error", errorMsg;

errorMsg = "Only the component lead can perform this action";

for(string c in comp) {
    if(getProjectComponentLead(project, c) == currentUser()) {
        pass = true;

if(!pass) {
    return false, "error", errorMsg;

Hi marteen,

Not possible out of the box, need add-ons or scripts.

Please can you tell which ones, we have some addon's like JSU.
