Related Issues with the same Field Value Condition

Introduction

It is a condition that checks the number of related issues having the same field value as the current issue. You can use this condition e.g. to check the number of issues created by the current user today or to enforce the maximum number of issues assigned to someone at the same time.

Condition parameters

  • Related Issues - as described below.
  • Field - a field to be compared with the current issue.
  • Operator - a math operator to be used.
  • Target value - the desired number of related issues to pass the condition.

Working with related issues

Related issues can be selected by using two inputs:

Issue Relation - where you can choose a relation with the current (transitioned) issue;

JQL - you can put your JQL text to filter some issues from the results. If you leave the JQL Field empty, all issues in a given relation are taken into account.

In the example above you wanted to execute a workflow function on subtasks of the current issue and take additionally only the ones with the "Sub-task" and priority="High" type.

Tags

In the JQL field you can put some text tags to be replaced with actual values of the current (transitioned) issue:

TagDescription

$$CURRENT_DATETIME$$

The current date and time.
 $$CURRENT_USER$$The name (login) of the current user.
$$ISSUEKEY$$The key of the current issue.
 $$ISSUEID$$ID of the current issue.
 $$REPORTER$$The current issue reporter's name.

$$ASSIGNEE$$

The current issue assignee's name
$$PROJECTKEY$$The project key.
$$CURRENT_STATUS$$The current issue status.
$$ISSUETYPE$$The issue type.
$$CREATED_DATE$$The date when the issue was created.

$$CURRENT_STATUS_CATEGORY$$

$$TRANSITION_NAME$$The name of an actual transition (doesn't work in Conditions)
$$TRANSITION_ID$$ID of an actual transition (doesn't work in Conditions).
$$TRANSITION_COMMENT$$The content of a transition comment (doesn't work in Conditions).

The JQL field has a built-in validation feature. If your query is incorrect, you will see a red sign next to the JQL field and an error description as shown below:
