How to create a validation workflow by an explicit JIRA user


I tried to create a specific workflow based on validtion.

I mean each transition must be approved by a specific user in order to pass from a status to another.

Is it possible with JIRA ? and if it is how ?

Thank you for your help.

Kind Regards

You could be better off looking at a "condition" than a "validator".  A condition hides and blocks a transition if the conditions are not met.  You can easily place conditions like "user must be in role", "user must be in group" and/or "user must be Dave" on transitions.

Validators happen after a user clicks on the transition, so they may get annoyed that they were offered a transition they could not use, or lose data they were trying to add during the transition.  You can use validators to do it, but I would avoid it for those reasons.  Validators are more for checking the input that a user does during a transition than checking if they can do it.
