Status Change 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 'Status Change' 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'.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.
