Condition to hide transition based on custom field and issue type

Disclaimer: I'm not good with scripting, I've only done a few basic ones here and there. Please assume I don't even know basics!

I'm trying to use the "Hide Transition (JMWE add-on)" condition on a workflow transition, so that the transition isn't available when two conditions are met.

The issue type is "Task".
The custom field "Needs Review?" (12012) has the option "No" selected from a single-select list.


I've tried many methods I've found online, none quite exactly what I'm trying to do, and none working. This is the simplest form I've tried, so probably a good place to start.

def value = getCustomFieldValue("customfield_12012");
if (issue.get("issuetype").name == "Task"){
    if (value == "No"){
    return false;
return true;


Thank you!

Sounds like you're doing it the hard way.  You can nest conditions, so you can have one condition that checks the issue type, use the "and" boolean and a second condition that checks the custom field.  The "JIRA Suite Utilities" add-on provides a condition called "Value Field." You can use that condition to control both actions. See the screenshots for an example. You use the same settings, but choose the appropriate field and string for each condition.

Hi Dave,

Thanks so much for your suggestion. I hadn't considered using add-ons as it's a bit of a hassle to get those approved, but I pushed this one through and the new condition worked out great.

Worth mentioning, we had to do a little extra complexity to eliminate a null condition. The final working result ended up like this.


Thanks again!

Sweet! That add-on has a lot of great features, so I'm sure you'll find ways to use them as well.
