Fast Track Transition: Condition not met for status

I'm having issues with my fast track transition not firing with the below condition for status.  I must not have the correct syntax for the Condition to be met.  The condition is Status='Approved-Company Car'.  Can someone help clarify what I'm doing wrong here?

You can use the following to retrieve the status name:


If you define a scripted field, you can quickly test such a condition with a specified issue key.

Kind regards,


Hi @Geert Graat,


Thanks for the response.  I'm still a little unsure how to get this working properly.  I've input the following now for the condition.  Do I need to specify the issue key for getStatusObject()? Also, do I need to specify anything in the brackets for getName?


issue.getStatusObject().getName() == 'Approved-Company Car'

issue.getStatusObject().getName() is exactly the same as You don't specify any key because you have the issue in the "issue" variable...

@Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist] Thanks, Jamie. Makes sense. It's still not working for me with condition= == 'Approved-Company Car' This is a custom status I created. I tried removing the space between "company" and "car" to see if that would work... still nothing. I'm out of ideas now.

maybe you have a trailing space or something on your status name. Is the condition tester there? If so try: assert == 'Approved-Company Car' (just to test) and post the output.
