Hello Raj,

To do that you will need to use some plugin, which allows using JQL queries for transition conditions. We have a sample plugin, which does that and we'll try to make it available on Marketplace some time soon.

For now you can use some other plugin - for example Script Runner, which lets you use "Allows the transition if this query matches a JQL query" script as a workflow condition:

It's probably a bit of overkill, though, as it is designed for more complex things.

After it is installed, you’ll be able to create a JQL query using the structure() function, which comes with the Structure plugin and which extends standard JIRA JQL:

Using this function you can specify various Structure-related conditions.

I'll add another comment here once we release the plugin for adding JQL for transition conditions.

Hope this helps.


Update: Here's the Structure Workflow Validator that lets you use an S-JQL query in your JIRA workflow transition validator.
