I have defined some custom conditions in my workflow, so that only users in a specific group can transition the issue to a specific status.
With this condition, users of other groups cannot even see the transition button on their screens. Is there a way to make the button appear, but not actually execute, in all users' screens?
For example, when a user not in the specified group presses the button it will pop-up an error message, or similar.
Do you have ScriptRunner? You can use a simple scripted validator for this. Select Script Validators -> Simple Scripted Validator and you'll also get examples in the "Add validator screen".
I'd give you an exact example but Atlassian Answers is very slow and the page is not loading. If you search for "jira validator user in group" you'll probably find it.
No, there's no way to do that. The button is hidden from the user because the next thing it does is start the transition and re-checks the user's conditions. Even if you dug into the code and suppressed the hide, there's nothing to get the pop-up if they click it, the next action is an error screen telling them they've landed on a url they don't have rights to.
