Transition condition on specific user

Hi guys,

I was wondering whether it's possible to setup JIRA workflow in such way, that only specific user can change status of an issue. Basically, I would like to create transition condition like current_user == 'jira_robot'. I seem to be unable to get current user using custom condition script. 

 

Thanks

Martin

Hi Martin,

you are right, there is no "user = abc" condition. But there is a condition "User is in Group", so an easy way is to create a group and add the user to this group and add the "User is in Group"-condition to the transition.

Yep, I know about this. But it's sort of a workaround. I was hoping there's a 'clean' way how to do this. But thank you for suggestion, I'll probably go with this solution.

 

Btw, Isn't there a way how to bypass this using ScriptRunner plugin which we are actually using?

Yes, this should be possible. There is an example here: 

https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/4.3.0/jira/recipes/workflow/conditions/current-user-equal-to-cf.html

You get the currentUser as described in the example and compare that value not to "sponsor.name" as stated in the example but with your own string.
