We're using Scrum boards, and before starting work on a sub-task, I have to "Assign to me" the story containing this sub-task, otherwise, nothing happens when I drag the task from "To Do" to "In Progress".
Is this correct? I think I'm missing something, because it doesn't make sense for story to be assigned to a developer; in Scrum the whole team is responsible for delivering a story.
You are using the default "jira" workflow which has a condition on Start Progress and Stop progress that the assignee is the current user. We typically have copied "jira" and removed the conditions for clients in your situation. Alternatively, Greenhopper 6 has the "simplified workflow" feature which also does not have the conditions. If you are running JIRA 5 you can upgrade to GH6 via the plugin manager right now.
I clicked on the "Simplify workflow" button on the project's board configuration page but after confirming my intent, I got an error dialog saying "Workflow migration did not complete successfully. Something went wrong when trying to associate the new workflow to the project in JIRA."
I can't see any errors on the Jira log, it only says "User 'dserodio' updated workflow 'GreenHopper Simplified Workflow for Project VULCANO' at 'Wed Sep 26 11:23:29 BRT 2012'"
How can I troubleshoot this problem? Should I ask a new question about this problem?
Thanks, I got it working now. There was no "Simplified Workflow", so I:
...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)....
