Condition parameters

  • Related Issues - as described below
  • Field - a field to be checked
  • Check the type:
    • Number of elements (returns 0 if the field is empty, 1 for single-value fields, and more than 1 if the field is multi-option and more that one option was selected). If you want to check "if a field is not empty" set "Number of elements > 0",
    • Field value (a specific field value),
    • Field value meets regular expression.
  • Multiple issue behavior
    • All found issues have to pass the condition.
    • Any found issue has to pass the condition.

Working with related issues

Related issues can be selected by using two inputs:

Issue Relation - where you can choose a relation with the current (transitioned) issue;

JQL - you can put your JQL text to filter some issues from the results. If you leave the JQL Field empty, all issues in a given relation are taken into account.

In the example above you wanted to execute a workflow function on subtasks of the current issue and take additionally only the ones with the "Sub-task" and priority="High" type.


In the JQL field you can put some text tags to be replaced with actual values of the current (transitioned) issue:



The current date and time.
 $$CURRENT_USER$$The name (login) of the current user.
$$ISSUEKEY$$The key of the current issue.
 $$ISSUEID$$ID of the current issue.
 $$REPORTER$$The current issue reporter's name.


The current issue assignee's name
$$PROJECTKEY$$The project key.
$$CURRENT_STATUS$$The current issue status.
$$ISSUETYPE$$The issue type.
$$CREATED_DATE$$The date when the issue was created.


A status category of the current issue (To Do, In Progress or Done).
$$TRANSITION_NAME$$The name of an actual transition (doesn't work in Conditions)
$$TRANSITION_ID$$ID of an actual transition (doesn't work in Conditions).
$$TRANSITION_COMMENT$$The content of a transition comment (doesn't work in Conditions).

The JQL field has a built-in validation feature. If your query is incorrect, you will see a red sign next to the JQL field and an error description as shown below:
