Block Workflow Transition for Reporter

Vignesh Jayagopal April 8, 2022


I have a use case to block the transition of workflow to Approved status by the reporter.

This is to restrict the person to approve their own tickets.

I checked in transition condition, but it has option to "Allow only reporter to transition the status" not having option to block it.

Is there any way this can be achieved in JIRA?

Hi @Vignesh Jayagopal 

There's no default condition/validator to achieve this, but you can do it with the help of an add-on like JMWE/JSU/ScriptRunner.

For example, with JMWE, "Build-your-own (scripted) condition" you could write something like this:

user.accountId != issue.reporter.accountId

 This will return "false" if the current user is the same as the report and therefor will hide the transition. If the reporter is different, the expression will return "true" and the transition will be visible.

Kind regards
