I'm using Next Gen Jira project in kanban mode.
I've created a Jira Automation rule that creates a task when an issue is moved to a specific status.
When that task is created it is placed in the Backlog rather than on the Board. How do I get Jira Automation to also move it from Backlog to Board?
The closest I can see is to set Sprint to Active Sprint but given that my board is kanban, Jira Automation doesn't let me do that.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Hi @Sam Cho
I don't think this is possible for the kanplan mode in next gen. I've opened a public ticket to support the "move to board" action in next gen: https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-2037
The only alternative I could think of is to turn on sprints and set sprint to "Active sprint" (as you mentioned above). However sprints might not be a solution that works with your teams working style :(
@John : Thanks for raising the ticket and confirming that I wasn't going mad trying to find that missing piece. 👍🏽
As I've just moved the team over to Next Gen and also from sprint to kanban I think that I might be lynched if I switched back to sprint now!
My workaround is to create the task as a subtask under the trigger issue. Not ideal but we can move forward on that.
Let me know if there's anything I can do to progress that ticket forward.
When issues are created, even through automation, they will be set to the status designated in the workflow for newly created issues. With a Kanban board that has Backlog enabled, that will usually mean the issue is placed in the backlog.
If you want it to be moved out of the backlog and onto the board, you need to extend the automation to include a Status Change/Transition on the new issue to update it to a status that is displayed on your Kanban board.
@Trudy Claspill : Thanks for responding. I understand your answers on a classic Jira project but on the next-gen project I do already see all statuses on my kanban board. So I'm unclear how transitioning the issue to another status then shows it on the board.
That aside - happy to give this a go. How do I get the Jira Automation to transition the task that I just created? When I use the Transition action it moves the issue that triggers the automation.
@Trudy Claspill : No worries - this is my first next-gen project and finding about all their idiosyncrasies.
