I'm looking to implement some sort of random processing within Jira. Only 25% of a specific sub-task needs to go through QA, so does anyone know of a way to do one of the following:
Any ideas would be much appreciated!
You can use Automation for Jira (which is standard in Cloud). You should be able to make a rule that selects a random number and multiply that with the number of issues within your query.
See the Random function here.
So you could make a custom field that sets a field (checkbox) in 25% of the time during a certain transition/creation of a subtask.
If you need help, just say the word, I'll try to figure something out if I have time.
What you do is,
1. Select a trigger (green block in the picture above): e.g. issue transition to a certain status
2. create a condition (yellow block in the picture above) and choose advanced compare condition. I used the smart values to get randomly a number between 1 and 4. And if the value is greater than 3
3. Then you can add an edit issue (blue block) and set the 'select this item for QA'-field (or whatever you've called it).
Afterwards you can easily use JQL to get all issues where that field is set.
@Rudy Holtkamp _ TMC _ Thank you very much for this information.
By default, most of the issues need to go through QA (so the "QA Required?" field will have a default value of Yes). However for some of the isssues (e.g. of a particular issue type) they do not need to be QA'd, so the value can be set to No. Do you think that the following rule therefore work for this?
(where the 'less than 4' refers to the 75% of issues which do not need to go through QA, and the action is setting the "QA Required?" field to No)
