How to set a permission for particular user to change the status Design signoff status in workflow

I want to setup a permission for only 4 persons can move the status from "Design sign-off"  to "Ready for development" status in below example work flow.

I have checked in condition tab under workflow, where I have permission for assigne, assignable..etc. But which on is a best to give access only for few members

(Example: Design in progress-> Design Done -> Design signoff -> ready for development)

Hi @Vimal K ,

Create group with four users and use to Condition called Users in Group in target transition and this which allows only users in a given group to execute a transition.

Hi @Vimal K ,

You can add groups under User management, just click on Settings 


And then User management > Groups > Create Group

I suggest using a project role. The project admin can add/delete users to the role without getting the JIRA admin involved. 

We can create it for the project, but I want to know how to set a access for the workflow where only particular user can change the status from one to other.
