How to conditionally show a transition screen?


Is it possible to conditionally show a transition screen based on a field value? i.e if a field has a certain value, then when the user clicks the button to transition the issue then a transition screen will appear. If this field does not have a certain value then the issue is automatically transitioned to the next state.

You can have two transitions, one when the field has a certain value and one when the field does not have that value. The first one will have a transition screen and the seocnd one will not have the screen.

Value field condition in JIRA Suite Utilities can be used for this.

Jobin doesn't explicitly say "Use a condition on the workflow" here, in case you were wondering. A "condition" stops the user being offered a transition. You'd want to put conditions on both transitions - one saying "allow if field is filled in" and the other saying "allow if field is empty". The users will only ever see one transition.

Interesting approach. There is still the problem that you need two different transition names because they need to be workflow unique. Any solution for this?

Use the same words, but put extra spaces in them if you have more than one word in a name.  Or add punctuation
