User in Field Precondition

This is the JSU for Jira Cloud documentation. If you are using JSU on Jira Server or Data Center, see our Server/Data Center documentation.


The User in Field precondition checks that the current user is in the specified field, typically a multi-select/user picker custom field.


You must specify the field that is the prerequisite for this transition, and whether the user must be in the field or not, when configuring the check. For example:

Example of User in Field precondition as described on this page.


A workflow is configured so that the 'Approve' transition has the 'User in Field' check. If the current user is not the specified reviewer, the description will be modified to show who performed the review instead.
