I have a java plugin that works with greenhopper/jira that moves certain issues around when certain conditions are met.
Is there any way I can prompt the user to confirm or cancel when these changes are about to happen using either Java or Jython?
As listeners are non interative. So in listeners, you can just store the ids of those issues which you are moving. In the UI part, you can create a separate jira menu which will be visible only when there are some issues left for moving and for confirmation. This condition will be checked by JIRA on next refresh of page automatically.
It is just an idea, you can do it in a completely different way according to your need.
Then, I'm afraid the answer is no. Listeners are completely non-interactive, there's simply nothing to hang any form of user prompting on.
In fact, I'm not too sure you can do it in any other way either. I assume you're looking for some form of acceptance popup when someone moves something on a GH board? I think that would need hooks coded into the core of Jira and GH
...It's true that there are projects in Jira; but they are merely a way to cut off issues, to tell them apart from other sections of work and to apply rules that are specific to that team (the schemes)....
