Configuration

  2. Activate the JQL condition option and define the JQL query that has to be met by the issue in order for the validation to work (e.g. “type = Bug and Priority = Blocker”)

  3. Activate the Executor condition option if you want the validator to work 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

      2. Select a project role in the Project role field if Project role was set in the member of a field
