Kanban : Show only the transitions in a column that are possible through the workflow (conditions)

We have a workflow with 2 statusses : To Develop and Developing?. There is a custom field (string) defined on our issues. There are 2 transitions defined from To Develop to Developing, but only one is possible - depending on the value of that custom field (string is empty or not). In issue mode we see only the correct one of the 2 transitions, that's ok.

But when we drag the issue in a kanban from the column To Develop to the column Developing (the columns have only one status), we get to choose between the two transitions? If you drag it to the wrong transition, you'll get an error:


My question now is if it's possible that the user only sees the correct transition like he does in issue-mode?

This looks like one of three things to me:

  • Validation (*not* conditions) is failing, blocking the transition
  • It is what it says, someone has changed the status, invalidating the action
  • A broken transition, probably because of an add-on

The reason it is not a condition is simple - the board will ignore any attempt to drop issues into a column if the transition you're trying is invalidated by conditions.
