Value Field Condition for Checkbox field?


is it possible to use Value Field Condition in workflow to compare checkbox field for specific option?

My scenario:

I have checkbox1 field with options valueA, valueB, valueC

I want to add condition like this: Find out if checkbox1 has valueA = true (checked)


In this page I didn't find anything about checkboxes.

Use 'script condition' if you have script runner plugin. Refer this document for a few examples.

Thanks Mahesh but I don't want to spend more money for Script runner plugin. I'm asking if it is possible with JSUTIL add-on?

Martin, I have tried the same with Value Field Condition using JSUTIL add-on. It works for checkboxes too!

I have tried for the same scenario where I have checked both 'A' and 'B' as the values. Moving to workflow, When I gave the condition with value as 'A' as given in the screenshot, it was returning true.image2016-10-18 18:39:33.png

And similarly true while giving the value 'B' as well. But when I gave it as 'C', it fails. Hence, this checks the availability of any of the field value in checkboxes and works perfectly!

Great. It also works with Comparison typeOption ID and Value: SelectedValue (eg. 12800) Thanks Mahesh!
