The security department at my job will like to add a checklist for security review in our workflow

Please how can i do this? 

After “Ready for Grooming”, we want a check box that says, "Does this require Security review?" If it does, we need them to add the component “Security Review” to the ticket. 

Later, when a ticket is moved to “Ready for Testing”, we want this checklist item: "If this ticket was flagged for Security Review, did you perform this security review?" This should be on stories, bugs, and tasks.

Thank you for your help!

Hello @Alisha Brooke 

Welcome to the community.

You can add a custom field that is a checkbox, or a radio button with Yes/No options. The simplest solution would have the field(s) display all the time. Making them display based on the status of the issue is not a feature that is available natively in Jira.

The exact steps for creating a custom field depend on whether you are working with a Company Managed project or a Team Managed project. It will say which it is at the bottom of the navigation pane on the left.

 

Thank you @Trudy Claspill  for your help. I will look into this and hopefully I'm able to figure it out

If you tell us what type of project it is, we can direct you to the correct documentation and offer more specific guidance.

 Its a company managed project @Trudy Claspill I believe that's what your asking?

Thank you!!!

Here is the starting page for the addition of custom fields for a Company Managed project.

https://support.atlassian.com/jira-cloud-administration/docs/create-a-custom-field/

At a high level you have to:

1. Create the field itself, at a system level.

2. Add it to Field Configuration(s) that apply to the projects and issues types where you want the field to be available.

3. Add it to the Screens that apply to the projects and issues types where you want the field to be available.

Thank you so much @Trudy Claspill  Its beginning to make more sense to me. I think the part " Making them display based on the status of the issue is not a feature that is available natively in Jira" is what is making it tricky. 

Thank you again. 

You could add a screen to the Workflow Transitions so that when the issue is transitioned to "Ready for Grooming" a pop-up displays with the field for "Does this require security Review?", as a reminder to the user to consider if that is needed. You could do the same for the other field and the other workflow transition.

If you have the option to subscribe to third party apps for your instance there are some apps that could extend the functionality of workflow validators so that you could also apply some validation as part of the transition. For instance, if you made the field a radio button with Yes/No options you could validate that either Yes or No was selected (that is was not left set to None). There are multiple apps available that can extend workflow functionality. The one that I am familiar with from using in on Jira Data Center a few years ago is Adaptavist Scriptrunner.

Thank you @Trudy Claspill for your help. Much appreciated. 

This was very helpful.
