    2. If you have selected Another user option, provide a user in the User field, so that the post function will be executed by this user

  3. Activate the JQL condition option and define the JQL query that has to be met by the issue in order to execute the post function (e.g. “type = Bug and Priority = Blocker”)

  4. Activate the Executor condition option if you want the post function to be executed only if the user is or isn’t in a certain Jira user group or project role

    1. Select if The executor has to be or can’t be a member of a certain Jira user group or project role

      1. Select a Jira user group in the Group field if Group was set in the member of a field
