User in Roles Precondition

JSU for Jira Cloud

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


The 'User in Roles' will verify that the current user is in at least one of the specified project roles.
There is a 'User Is In Role' condition in standard JIRA, which only lets you verify the membership of the user against a single project role.


You must specify the roles that are the prerequisite for this transition, when configuring the check. For example:


A workflow is configured so that the 'Resolve' transition has the 'User in Roles' check. If the executing user is an administrator, all sub tasks will be closed as well.

Supported Field Types

In its different modules (especially those for workflows), the JSU app supports many different field types. System fields, as well as custom fields.

However you should be aware, that not all field types or all combinations are supported. We think we cover the most important field types and are still continuously adding and improving which, and how different field types are supported. But the one you need might not work (yet). 

We recommend that you test JSU with fields to see if it is compatible with your system. Our evaluation license gives you 30 days free trial.
