The basic back-and-forth of our workflow goes Open -> Investigating -> Waiting On Report -> Investigating -> Waiting On Reporter -> ... -> Closed.
Is it possible to have the customer portal force the user to use a workflow action instead of just leaving a comment? This would push the status from Waiting On Reporter to Investigating, instead of just adding a comment and leaving the ticket in Waiting On Reporter.
Or is it just recommended to use an Autotransition Listener for this purpose? If so, is it possible that the listener can be set up to only auto-transition if the comment is added by the customer in the service desk portal and not if added through the regular Jira interface?
JIRA Service Desk has some auto transition code in it today. If a requestor makes a comment then it auto transitions into Waiting for Support.
That said this code ONLY works if the workflow is the native workflow as installed into a new Service Desk project.
If you are using your own workflow OR you have enabled Service Desk for an exsiting project then this auto transition code wont work. It wont work because we cannnot sensibly KNOW qwhat constitutes a bounce for that workflow.
So in this case you should use your own Auto transition Listener code to run to match the workflow you have.

The problem I've found is that the user see's "Waiting On Reporter" so they add a comment. The auto-transition happens, but since this happens AFTER the fact, the user still see's the issue is "Waiting On Reporter" until they reload the page.
this seems still to be a problem. I agree with you. Easily configure Workflows for Service Desk with auto-transition is still not possible today. At the moment I am evaluating SD for our existing Jira-Instance.
I tried to reach the transition effect by inserting sd.action.keys, like sdInit, sdWFCustomer and so on... (Saw that keys on the original workflow).
Is any update planned on that behaviour, so that admins can design their own workflows (including transitions) for SD purposes easier?
If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
