If I understand you, you want to limit who can be the second approver based on who was the first? You'd need a script for that if you're using user ids. And remember you'll need to update the script when the players change.

Hi Joe thanks for the answer, i want to limit who can be the first approver based on the custom user field named (First Approval) and after that i want to limit also who can be the second approver based on the custom user field named (Second Approval). Do i need a plugin or script for this? If i do need a script how can i plug in the script to the JIRA im very new in JIRA application

I believe the behavior plugin allows scripting. I stay away from it because if someone else takes over support they may not have the skills to support it. As I said, if the players change the script will need updating.
