Only allow status transition if a custom field == value

DJ June 15, 2023

Hi

I have a custom workflow.

I have a Review status (sign off) and Done status

I would like to only allow the reviewer to be able to move the issue to Done only if he has selected a specific option from a custom field in the issue when in the Review status.

  • Issue moved to Review  
    • Issue cannot be moved to Done 
  • Issue dropdown field must be changed (Reviewed and Passed)
  • Status is set to Done

Can anyone give me a clue on the Automation logic steps

Hi @DJ ,

You need to add a condition to your workflow transition.

  • Edit your workflow
  • On the "Review" to "Done" transition, add a "Condition"
  • Select the "Value" field condition. If set, the transition can only be executed when the field has a specific value.

 

Best regards,

Kris

Thanks Kris

When I select Value field condition as you mentioned I cannot see my custom field name in the list?

It might not be visible intially. But it should appear when you start typing the name in the field.

Hi,

I am trying to achieve the same by using Feild required validator, but I am having different scenario

I am having Field Retrofit with the values as in the below screenshot.
retrofit 1.PNG

Now I want to add condition in the Transition to "Impact Assessment" to "In Progress" with the below conditions 

If Retrofit Type = Configuration then Field Relevant should not be blank 
if Retrofit Type = Data Migration then Feild Data Migration Enhancement should not be blank  

if Field Relevant is blank when Retrofit Type = Data Migration it should transition to next status In Progress, how can I achieve this? 
  
Is this can be achieved via automation

Hi @Amzad Khan

I am not sure about Automation, but it will be quite simple using any Jira expression-based validator/condition available on the Atlassian marketplace.

I am from Forgappify, and we developed Jira Expression Validator/Condition, which is part of the Workflow Building Blocks for Jira app.

The expression you need would be similar to the one below:

issue.customfield_a?.value == "Configuration" 
? issue.customfield_b != null
: issue.customfield_a?.value == "Data Migration"
? issue.customfield_c != null
: true

where customfield_a represents Retrofit Type, customfield_b is Relevant field, customfield_c is Data Migration Enhancement. 

You need to change customfield_ids to match ids on your instance. With our editor it is easy, just start typing the name of the field after "issue." , and you will get the correct suggestion.

I hope this is helpful for you, regards!
