Can you limit transition options in Jira next-gen projects?

I would like to limit the available statuses when transitioning an issue to the "next" status. I do not see a way to do this on the kanban board or within the automation rules settings. Is this possible in next-gen projects?


An example:

I have 5 possible statuses in my project: TO DO, IN PROGRESS, QA READY, UAT READY, ON HOLD, DONE. The current issue is in IN PROGRESS status. I want to limit the next possible statuses to QA READY or ON HOLD only.

Hi Ricky,

Thank you for getting in touch with Atlassian Community!
Currently, when an agent has the permission to transition issue, they will be able to make any transition, so it's not possible to limit it.
On next-gen projects, it's not possible to configure the workflow to add conditions or to change permissions for someone to just see the ticket, for example.

Please, feel free to raise a suggestion on adding more information about why this feature is important.
