Use Custom Field (multi user picker) as condition for workflow transition

Renske de Boer Dec 09, 2013

I have a Custom Field of type "multi user picker". I would like to use the user(s) specified in this field as condition for a transition in my workflow. Is this possible?

If I use the condition "User Is In Group Custom Field", the custom field I would like to use does not appear in the Group Selector list.

I would appreciate any help you can provide.

the "User Is In Custom field" condition is from the JSU plugin

Did you try the "Users in custom field" option? See if that works.

Renske de Boer Dec 10, 2013

Hello Jobin, thank you for your answer. I don't see the "Users in custom field" option. The only condition options related to users are "User Is In Group", "User Is In Group Custom Field", "User Is In Project Role" and the assignee and reporter options.

I tried the "User Is In Group Custom Field" option, but my custom field does not appear in the list. Do I need to configure it in some way?

Hello!

How to compare UserPicker (multi) values with empy string ("", null)?

Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Community Leader Jun 01, 2018

To answer your question as stated, custom-field-value.equals("")

In reality, that will not work, because an empty custom field is not "" or even null, you will get a not found error as it doesn't exist at all.

In that case a simple "(if custom-field-value)" will do the right test for you.

p.s.: resolved as {code}{Approver} != /nobody.*/{code}
