Current Transition virtual field not working on global transition condition

Issue #885 resolved
Aggelos Paraskevopoulos [Cententia] created an issue


is there any chance that "Current transition" virtual field is not returning any value when checked in a global transition?

I'm trying to write a condition like this:

"Only if the following boolean expression is true: %{Current transition} != %{Issue status}"

to avoid "seeing" the transition when in the same status.

    Hi @aggelosp,

    I think that you should use "Target status" (field code %{00177}) instead of "Current transition", i.e., you should use:

    %{00177} != %{00016}

    where %{00016} si field code for Issue status.

    Hi @fcarmario ,

    I've tried this and it's not working either.

    Actually I've tried to get the "issue status" and append it to description in a post function and the value is empty.

    Please, confirm the version of JIRA and JIRA Workflow Toolbox you are using.

    Can you, please, provide an XML export of your workflow?

    Latest JWT 2.2.44, tested with Jira 7.3.7 and 7.1.10.


    Sending the XML export in a few. Please check the Acknowledged global transition.

    Yes, there is a bug. Global transitions are not considered. This will be fixed in next version of the add-on. I will provide a beta version as soon as possible.
