Conditions control whether the user can execute a transition. If a condition fails, the user won't be able to execute the transition. For example, the user won't see the transition button on the View issue page.

How to add a condition?

  1. Edit the workflow that contains the transition.

  2. In diagram mode, select the transition arrow and click Conditions in the properties panel. or In text mode, select the transition's name from the Transitions (id) column.

  3. Select the Conditions tab and click on Add condition button

  4. Choose from the available conditions, and set any necessary parameters for the condition

  5. Remember to Publish Draft

Recently, in Jira, you may have noticed the new workflow editor, which lacks support for conditions and validators provided by apps. Switch to the old editor to use the app.
