How do I, using JMWE connector, restrict "Linked Issues Status Validator" rule Edited

Hi I'm trying to write a "Linked Issues Status Validator" validation rule that only runs against a sub-task if a custom field on the sub-task is set to a specific value. Otherwise don't run the validation. 

Is this possible with a linked issue validation rule?

Unfortunately, you can't do that with the Linked Issue Status Validator. You'll need to use the Linked Issues Validator instead, and test both the linkedIssue status and custom field in the Jira expression. Something like:

linkedIssue.customfield_12345.value != "An option value" || ["Status 1","Status 2"].includes(

where customfield_12345 is the field ID of the custom field (assuming it's a single-select type field - otherwise, use the "Issue Fields" help tab to find out how to test your specific custom field) and "Status 1", "Status 2" the two statuses you want the sub-tasks to be in.

Hi Kieran,

Is the sub-task the issue being transitioned, or are you trying to validate sub-tasks of the issue being transitioned (using the “is Parent of” link type in the validation configuration)?

Hi David,

Yes I'm trying to validate a sub-task of the issue being transitioned and i'm using the link type "is Parent of".
