Validate User fields


I created one additional field "Task Owner" of type USER Picker.

While transition, I would like to validate Current User & Task Owner.

How can I proceed.

This action will happen when I click on Start Process.


Thanks in Advance.

Sivarama Krishna.

Hi @Sivarama Krishna ,

You can validate current user against Task Owner customfield if you have add-ons such as Script Runner, Jira Workflow Toolbox etc.

  • Please go to Workflow -> Start Progress Transition -> Validators -> Add Validator
  • For Script Runner: Add Script Validator -> Simple Script Validator and check if current user is task owner.
  • For JWT: Use Compare Two Parsed Texts validator.


Hi @Sivarama Krishna ,

speaking of Jira Workflow Toolbox, I'd recommend using a Boolean validator with an expression as simple as:

%{nnnnn} = %{00020}

 Please replace nnnnn with the field code of your Task Owner field - 00020 is the default field code for Current User.
