Is it possible to automate a rule in Jira where story points must be added before any issue (task, subtask, bug) is moved from one workflow status to another?
For example, given task A is 'in progress' and does not have any story points assigned to it. When I attempt to change its status to 'in test' then it asks for me to add story points.
I hope this makes sense.
Automation is more like a "post function" as it happens after the transition not before. So you need to build this restriction into the workflow. You could do this using a Validator in the workflow. You can use one of the below whichever meets your needs and then choose Story Points.
Edit the desired transition from your workflow configuration screen
Each transition can have conditions or validators, as well as postfunctions. The first two are the relevant points for this matter.
I'm not sure right now if "story points" is a parameter you can use to define either of those parameters in jira "right out of the box" (you might) but I'm positive you can find some plugins / apps in the marketplace to extend workflow edition capabilities in case you need it.
