Number of Issues with the same field value

Introduction


Complex element

This workflow element is complex and maybe a little confusing for beginners. If you have any further questions, please contact us via our Customer Portal.

It's a validator that verifies the number of issues in Jira with the same field value as in the current issue. A flexible JQL-based issue selection and a number of operators allow you to customize the validation.


You can use this validator for (e.g.):

  • Preventing users from reporting too many issues per day.
  • Disallowing working on too many issues at the same time.
