Issue matches JQL


The Issue matches JQL validator allows you to block a workflow transition if the issue doesn’t match the JQL query.


  1. Define the JQL query that has to be met by the issue in the JQL field (e.g. “type = Bug and Priority = Blocker”)

  2. Define the text of the error message in the Error message text field (e.g. “The issue doesn’t contain any comments”)

Use cases

  • Escalation is available only for bugs with Blocker and Critical priority
