Rob is in QA, Mike is a PM

You could this script to test the assignee role.


String role = 'QA'

ProjectRoleManager projectRoleManager = componentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(ProjectRoleManager.class)
ProjectRoleActors projectRoleActors = projectRoleManager.getProjectRoleActors(projectRoleManager.getProjectRole(role), issue.getProjectObject())


How would I use this with the Fast Track Transition?

Pretty much, where would I put the script within the workflow?

Would I create a custom script with Fast Track and this one meged?

Or is there some way I can connect the two?

You can use one of the provided links beneath the condition field which populates the condition with


to restrict the fast track to specific roles.


But is that referring to the assignee or the user at the time of the transition?

It the current user who is executing the transition, not the assignee.

Trying to find a way to it's the assignee. Not the current user.

Ah, sorry. Should've read the question. :-)

You seem to have two different conditions here. You can use both, combined with an AND or and OR, but it's worth being clear.

Henning's use of isUserMemberOf does answer your original question, - it will let people in the role of Administrator to run your "fast track" transition. If I were to log in as an ordinary project user, then I simply would not see the "fast track" and I couldn't run it.

The assignee is a separate condition. You can add that in a second condition on the transition to make the logic say "Fast track can only be done by admins, OR the current assignee". Or, you could make it say "the user must be the assignee AND they must be an admin".

In all cases, Jira looks at the person logged in to match them against those conditions (it's nonsense to do it any other way)

Fast Track Transition is a postfunction in Script Runner to execute another transition after a transition triggered by a user. The condition is the condition under which the transition is triggered and IMO it's ok to restrict the trigger on the role of the assignee.

Ah, thanks Henning, I've not used that one before, so didn't think of it.
