Script Runner - Restrict creation of specific issue type for specific users/groups/project


I am looking for ability to restrict creation of specific issue type for specific users/groups/project.

I found that the easiest solution is a Script runner validator in workflow "create transition"

So I need the condigition:


issueType="IssueType" && user who is creating this issue is member Of Role("Project Role") && project is "PROJECTKEY"

returns true, then issue could not be created.

1) issue type condition is == 'Bug'

2)project role condition is


3) I am not able to find condition for project. I tried

issue.getProjectObject().key == "ABCD-123", but it doesn't work.

Is there a possibility to find a project key? I need to merge these three conditions.

Thank you in advance,

Hello Fyodor,

Use the following syntax to grab the project in your condition:

issue.projectObject.key == 'ABCD'

The complete condition would look something like:

issue.projectObject.key == 'ABCD' && isUserMemberOfRole('Administrators') && == 'Bug'

Hope this helped!

Hello Svante

Thank you for info.

I need to check three conditions, so it seems I need creat multi-level condition, e.g.

if( == 'Bug'){
if(issue.projectObject.key == 'ABCD'){
invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("Invalid condition!")

In all others situation issue can be created

Is it possible to put such exression in script runner validator?



import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

if(issue.projectObject.key == 'ProjectA'){
if( == 'Task'){
invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("Task can create Manager only!")

But this is not work...
