User Condition

A workflow condition that allows you to hide/show a particular transition from the list of available workflow actions based on either the current user or users in a specific field meeting certain criteria, such as being the reporter or assignee, belonging to certain groups or project roles, satisfying a Jira expression, etc.

To add a 'User Condition' to a transition:

  1. Click Edit for the workflow that has the transition you wish to configure the validator on.

  2. In the Workflow Designer, select the transition.

  3. Click on Conditions in the properties panel.

  4. Click on Add condition.

  5. Select User Condition from the list of validators.

  6. Click on Add to add the condition.

  7. Configure the user(s) to check and the criteria (see below).

  8. Click on Add to add the condition to the transition.

When you add this condition to a transition, the transition will be available only if the configured user(s) satisfy the configured criteria.

User(s) to check

You must first configure which user(s) need to be checked. You can check either the current user, or user(s) in an issue field such as Assignee, Reporter, or any user picker custom field.

  • Current user: the current user will be checked

  • User(s) in field: the user in the specified field, such as Assignee, Reporter, or any User Picker custom field, will be checked. If the selected field is a multi-valued field, such as Voters, Watchers, or a Multi-user Picker custom field, all users in that field will be checked, and they all need to satisfy the criteria.


You need to specify whether the user(s) to be checked must satisfy all the configured criteria or at least one.

  • all the criteria configured below: each user will need to satisfy every criterion

  • at least one of the criteria configured below: each user will need to satisfy at least one of the criteria

  • or the field can be empty: if you select the “at least one of the criteria configured below” option and the “User(s) to check” is “User(s) in field”, you can also decide whether an empty field satisfies the condition. For example, if you are checking the Assignee field and you select the “or the field can be empty” option, the condition will succeed and the transition will be available even if the issue is unassigned.


You need to specify at least one criterion that the user(s) must satisfy for the condition to succeed. You can check whether each user:

  • is the Reporter

  • is the Assignee

  • is a Watcher

  • is a Voter

  • belongs to one of the specified Project Roles in the issue’s project

  • belongs to one of the specified groups

  • belongs to a list of specific users

  • belongs to a field, such as a user picker custom field

  • satisfies a Jira expression. For each user to check, the Jira expression is evaluated and must return true for the transition to be available. Note that the user being checked is available through the selectedUser variable.
