JIRA expression Nested IF condition

Hello All,

        We have a SIL validator in JIRA server version which has nested if conditions. Suprised to know that JIRA Cloud does not support SIL validators directly and have to use JIRA Expressions. Does JIRA Expressions support nested if conditions?

if(condition 1 is true){

      if(condition 2 is true){

       do something

Hi @Vignesh Kumar ,

Welcome to the community and welcome to Jira Cloud!

Personally, I'm a huge fan of Jira Expressions, and I hope you'll come to like them.

Yes, nested conditions are possible and thankfully quite easy to do. Let's say you want a validator that checks that an issue is assigned and that its priority is medium. Here's how you'd do that:

issue.assignee != null && issue.priority == "Medium"

 Of course, you can also do OR and so much more, check out the documentation

Hope that helps,
