Require comments during status transitioning

Dana Weinbaum August 30, 2023

Is it possible to require adding a comment when transitioning an Idea to a specific status? 

I want to ensure a reason is captured when a Creator transitions an Idea to a 'Won't implement' status. 

Even if it's impossible to require it, I would at least like to ensure it's highlighted as a reminder. 

Thanks

Hello Dana, 

Jira Product Discovery projects are team-managed projects, in which you don't have the concept of screens. I guess that's something you could also set up as a workflow transition "properties" but same here, workflows of team-managed projects are "lightweight" and do not let you put these types of restrictions. 

The only workaround I could think of would be to create an automation rule, that creates a comment with an @mention, or sends an email to that person to remind them to fill this field. 
If you create a specific field for this reason, you can even check that this field is empty before creating the comment/email. 

Cheers, 

Hermance

Thanks for the reply. 

Perhaps a future enhancement...?

If we had manual transitions with additional information, we could do this... But alas..

Hi @Dana Weinbaum 

You can use "Transition Screen" on the specific transition where you want to enforce adding a comment.

I couldn't find this option as part of the rules or automation for Jira Product Discovery.

@Dana Weinbaum , Sorry I didn't noticed that this question was related to Jira Product Discovery. I don't think Jira Product discovery supports this at present.
