Using Profields in Jira workflows

To give Profields more functionality and expand its scope, we have included the possibility of adding conditions (Profields Value Condition) and validations (Profields Value Validator) to Jira workflows.

Adding Profields Value Condition to Jira workflows.

To add a Profields Value Condition to a Jira workflow:

  1. Log in as a user with Jira Administrator permissions.
  2. Go to: 'Administration' > 'Issues' > 'Workflows'.
  3. Follow Atlassian’s instructions to add a new condition.
  4. In the Add new Condition to Transition window, select Profield Value Condition from the list and click on Add.



  5. In the Add Parameters to Condition window, add the parameters to the condition, specifying the:

    • Name of the Profield field.
    • Operator (= or !=)
    • Value to be validated based on the Operator. (The text is case sensitive)




    In the example shown, the transition will only be executable if the ‘Profield status’ is ‘Open’.

  6. Click on Add to save the changes and return to the previous screen. The new Condition will now be shown on the list of conditions.
