How to test the new status in a site condition for task status transitions?

I have a requirement from our Change Management team to block a specific Manager Approval task from being completed in Classic Workflow if there is no Risk Survey filled out on the change.  There are 2 caveats to this criteria..


  1. If PAM auto-completes the task as Not Required ( I use a consistent assignee when this happens)
  2. If the status is changed to a non-complete status (Ex. Info Required)


I've managed 2 out of 3 of the TRUE conditions so far.


For the survey:

  • I created a Notification Association pointing to the Object Type Attribute:   chg.submittedSurvey.length
  • In my site condition I check if that = 1.


For the PAM Auto Complete

  • I check if the assignee = CAWebSvcs, Process Automation


But how can I check the NEW status?  I've tried testing the status field but it only evaluates to true when I test for the current status.  What I want is something like:   New Status = Info Required


A more open ended condition that would be more flexible would be New Status.task_complete = 0


But if I can't query the value selected, how can I pull this off?
