Group User JIRA workflow validator

Hi Community.

I am looking for a practice (or plugin) in which at certain workflow transition, a user is selected at the transition screen, and once before transitioning the issue to its next state, jira must validate that the selected user belongs to a group. I want to know how to implement this.

Hi Darly,

You may implement a User Is In Group condition in the workflow, following the instructions on the document below:

I hope this helps.


You can do a validator for group check using the script runner plugin.

Use the validator Scripted Validator -> "Simple Scripted Validator" -> put the code in condition box and message that is to be displayed when condition is not true.

There is already a example for reporter not in group. You can modifiy reporter to the field you want to check the user from.
