Workflow Validators

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


Validators check the field value of the issue and reject the transition if the criteria are not met.

The following workflow validators were originally provided by JSU, but are now maintained for Jira Cloud by Atlassian:

  • Date Compare

  • Fields Required

  • Regular Expression Check

  • Date Window

  • Parent Status

To add a validator to your workflow rule:

  1. Open a draft version of your workflow. 

  2. Select your transition, then select the Validators tab. Existing validators for the transition are listed.

  3. Select Add Validator to choose a validator.

To learn more about workflow validators in Jira, see Atlassian's Jira documentation. Our Workflow Validators documentation for JSU for Jira Server/Data Center may also provide some helpful hints on configuring them in Jira Cloud.
