Movement of cards only when checklist is complete

I have a board with 5 lists in it.

I have automated creation of cards, movement of cards from 1 list to another, created buttons etc.

I would like to enable movement of cards only when items in a checklist have been checked, is this possible using Butler or any other automation power up

Hi @Naveed Ahmed 

You can control the movement of Issues with the Smart Checklist for Jira. Pro by setting the Automation Rule to only move the Issue to the next state when all checklist items are completed. Read more here

There is also a Smart Checklist for Jira. Free option available.

And whenever you need help - reach out to



Hello @Naveed Ahmed,

You mention Buttler which suggests that you work with Trello.

However, given the fact that your question is labeled with a `jira-service-desk-cloud` tag, and our competitors advertised their solution, I would like to mention our app too.

You can use Issue Checklist Free or Issue Checklist Pro to block moving cards if the checklist is not complete. 

You can read more in our documentation and reach us with questions here

Hello @Naveed Ahmed ,

Have you considered using a marketplace addon for your Checklists creation? Our Multiple Checklists for Jira app allows you to set validators to your Jira issues.

For example you can restrict transition of Jira issue in case when not all checklists items are done:


or restrict transition for checklists without status set:

You can also set those validators for all checklists or only for lists with specific titles.

Please feel invited to check it out in our free trial, in case of any questions, I'll be happy to assist you just contact us here.
