Transition an Issue Using jira-python.

I am simply trying to change an issue's status and resolution to resolved.

Per the docs.

My transition IDs

>>> issue = jira.issue('TES-2')
>>> transitions = jira.transitions(issue)
>>> [(t['id'], t['name']) for t in transitions
... ]
[(u'11', u'To Do'), (u'21', u'In Progress'), (u'31', u'Done')]

My Code:

#try 1
jira.transition_issue(issue, '31', resolution={'id': '10000'})
#try 2
jira.transition_issue(issue, '31', resolution={'name': 'Done'})

This yields a 500 error with no message.

 

Per this thread and this other one, I tried:

jira.transition_issue(issue, transitionId='31')

 

This throws an error stating transition issue requires 3 arguments and 2 are given.

I then tried

jira.transition_issue(issue, transitionId='31', assignee={'name': 'admin'})

I get the same error despite having three arguments.

I'm running jira-python 1.3.

I have also downloaded from source and tried 1.7.

My account is an admin.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

My use case was only to change status of ticket.  

All you need to change in your previous attempt is do not explicitly mention the word "transitionId="  

jira.transition_issue(issue, '31')

This should work.

omg I spent hours trying to solve this! yes, it works thanks!

Like Jonathan Doan likes this


jira.transition_issue(issue, transition='Deployed')

it was working while i was using python 2.7 doesn't work with python 3 ..any idea why ?

i even tried 

jira.transition_issue(issue, 'id')

thanks in advance.
