How do I refer to custom issue types in code?

I am trying to work with JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions.

I was wondering how do I refer to custom issue types when I use conditional post functions.

 

Every example or sample code give deals with Epics, stories and subtasks. 

However, I've created my own issue types (Like, "request", and "specific deliverable", etc)

And I don't know how to refer to them in the code!

 

More specifically, I want to use the post function to transition a related issue after all the sub-issues with a certain task has gone from in progress to done.

I found the documentation example for it here:

https://innovalog.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JMWEC/Conditional+execution

However, it uses epics and stories.

 

Any help or experience would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi,

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "I want to use the post function to transition a related issue after all the sub-issues with a certain task has gone from in progress to done.". More specifically, what do you mean by "a related issue" and "sub-issues with a certain task"? 

How are your issues related? The Epic/Story relationship is represented (internally) by Issue Links. Are you using issue links to connect your "request" and "specific deliverable" issues?

Hi David, all I am looking for is a way to refer to the "Request" issue item the same way the code refers to an "Epic". Because epics, stories, tasks, etc are built in, to refer to them in the code, you just use their names, but because a "Request" is a custom issue type, I don't know how to refer to it in the code.

 

And by code, I am referring to the expressions you use to set up conditional post-functions.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
