Status Change Precondition

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.


The Status Change precondition checks if status of the issue will be changed when executing the current transition. This condition is useful to prevent Any status transitions from being displayed when the transition does not change the current issue status (i.e. a transition Start Progress when the status is currently In Progress ).


This precondition does not have any configurable options.

For information on how to configure a check for a workflow transition in Jira, see the Jira documentation.

Example of the Status Change precondition as described on this page.


A 'From Any Status' workflow transition is configured so that the 'Start Progress' transition will change the status from any issue status to 'In Progress'. The 'From Any Status' transition will be available in all statuses, however, you may want to prevent the 'Start Progress' transition from being displayed when the issue is already in the status 'In Progress'. When adding the 'Status Changed Condition' the 'Start Progress' transition will not be available when the issue is in the status 'In Progress'.
