Status Changed Precondition

JSU for Jira Server/Data Center

This is the documentation of JSU for Jira Server/Data Center. If you are using JSU on Jira Cloud, see our JSU Cloud documentation.


The 'Status Changed' check will return true if the status of the issue will be changed when executing the current transition. This condition is useful to prevent "Any Status" transitions from being displayed when the transition does not change the current issue status (i.e. a transition "Start Progress" when the status is currently "In Progress").


This Condition does not have any configurable options.

For information on how to configure a check for a workflow transition in Jira, see the Jira documentation.


A 'From Any Status' workflow transition is configured so that the 'Start Progress' transition will change the status from any issue status to 'In Progress'. The 'From Any Status' transition will be available in all statuses, however, you may want to prevent the 'Start Progress' transition from being displayed when the issue is already in the status 'In Progress'. When adding the 'Status Changed Condition' the 'Start Progress' transition will not be available when the issue is in the status 'In Progress'.

Precondition Configuration

Preconditions can be configured in several ways:

  • A result of a precondition can be negated 
  • A result of a precondition can be combined with a result of previous preconditions using the following ways:
    • Discard the result of the previous precondition (Results of the previous preconditions are not taken into account)
    • AND (All of the preconditions have to be true to allow execute a post function)
    • OR (Only one of the preconditions has to be true to allow execute a post function)
