Cloud Jira: Stop issues transitioning status when a kanban column max number has been met Edited

I have set up a new kanban board including some max issue constraints on each column. I notice that the column changes colour when the max number is exceeded. I really want it to not allow someone to move any more issues into the column when the max count has been met. Forcing them to move an issue out before they can progress anything else. The docs ( only mention the colour change, is it possible to also apply the more strict constraint?

It's not possible to restrict transition based on column size without an add-on.


And which add-on makes this possible?


I'm not aware of any add on's that does it specifically (i havent looked) but know that you can probably do it with scriptrunner via a Scripted condition on your transitions.

I found this thread. It may be possible with "AM Utils".

Still not sure.

i should have said, the question relates specifically to cloud based Jira, so no scripting options unfortunately. Well last I checked anyway.

It's ok! In my case it's Jira Server.

ScriptRunner does support Cloud but they dont have scripted conditions on transitions.  You could hack it maybe with a scripted post function, which IS supported that could undo the transition after the fact.
