Restrict workflow transition for different project


Is it possible to restrict a transition being used on a workflow that is shared with another project that has the same issue type?

i.e. Project A has transition 'X' but Project B does not show transition 'X' (both projects use the same workflow and same issue types, but for different purposes.

If you want a different behavior you should copy the workflow, make the changes and assign the new workflow to project B.
Thats the cleanest solution.

Thanks for your reply Stefan.

Both projects use the same workflow scheme and would like to keep things the same. I wondered if you could get by using a Condition on the workflow?

You could write a scripted condition in groovy (plugin Scriprunner).

Check if project is == XYZ then true else false.

if you need help with the script i could have a look on that tomorrow.

Yes please! I'd appreciate if I could get some help writing the script


Its a really simple script. Enter the project key you want to check in keyToCheck. Testet it and works as expected

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project

passesCondition = false;
Project project = issue.getProjectObject()
def keyToCheck = "ENT"

if (keyToCheck == project.getKey()){
    passesCondition = true;
