Looking for a way to add a Definition of Done checklist to Jira ticket, on demand

  1. We need a multiple list of checklist of DOD templates. Each team or department can make the checklist according to their needs
  2. Checklist can’t be automatically added to every ticket, so there should a manual option to Add checklist to jira ticket, when needed.
  3. Once checklist is added to the ticket, that ticket can’t be marked as Done if all items in checklist are not marked done

Hello @Jitendra Vyas 

sounds like our Multiple Checklists for Jira might be just a perfect solution for you.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how you could configure the app to track the DoD in your projects -

and as for your last requirement, here's a guide that shows how you can block the transition to done if the checklist has not been completed yet -

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions, or simply start a free trial and check if the app fits your needs.

Good luck!

I tried this Plugin but in this, Checklist items added to Jira ticket can be edited and deleted by anyone, which I don't want

Hi @Jitendra Vyas ,

Since many competitors are promoting their products, let me do the same. We're are the maker of the Checklist for Jira app, the on-premise checklist app with the most active installs.

We do support all the aforementioned requests and much more.

You can indeed create multiple templates that can either be automatically or manually added to the ticket. Each template can be controlled by their team/projects. What's nice about it is that if you figure out some recurring pattern, you can even have the template be automatically added to the issue based on a JQL on the issue creation or workflow transition via our Workflow function. If not, then each user simply adds them manually.

As for preventing the transition to done, we have the most comprehensive Workflow Validator and Condition that allows you to control the workflow transitions based on many checklist characteristics. For example, an interesting pattern in a DoD is to have some items mandatory while others are optional. Our validator can block the transition if you only want to validate the mandatory ones. If you don't want the DONE transition to even appear on the issue, use our Condition instead.

If you are using ScriptRunner or SIL Scripting, you can completely control the checklist content if you have some very elaborate use cases (Our Condition, Validator and Workflow functions should cover 95% of typical use cases).

Finally, we have compiled a list of use cases that can be covered with our app. Might be worthwhile to check it up to see the power of the app.

If you have any issue or question related to the app, feel free to reach out via our support portal and we'll gladly help you solve the issue.



Hi @Jitendra Vyas 


Try checking out Smart Checklist for Jira to help you with the tasks you have.

With our add-on, your users will be able to add checklists to the Jira issues manually according to their needs. It is also possible to add checklists automatically by using our templates functionality:


Speaking of marking the issue Done only after all the items are Done, it can be achieved as well! See the details here:


Be sure to contact our Support Team if you have any additional questions.

Hi @Jakub Sławiński,

Per the vendor guidelines Bill mentioned, please make sure you update your post wording and public name to meet the requirements.

From the article Bill mentioned:

Make sure the user is aware you are affiliated with a partner company; for example, by placing the name of your company in your user name in {curly brackets} or -dashes- (note that regular brackets no longer work and have been automatically converted to dashes).

Thank you for your help!

Take care,

Sure, no problem. This was only a quick link to the article posted in a hurry so I didn't provide that information.


@Shannon S @Bill Sheboy Please let me know if I should change anything else.
