I'm currently using an addon called Approval Path for Jira to create an approval flow in a Jira Software Project.
The way the addon works out of the box: On each issue, there is a section added where you can manually click a "Start" button to launch the approval process. So it's an onclick(event).
The way I want it to work: I'd like to be able to launch the approval start "click" when an issue is transitioned to the status, "Waiting for Approval". Then the user can review requests/issues and move them to the new status which will automatically launch the approval.
I already have a webhook automation step setup to transition the status to "Approved" after the approval is completed.
Hello @Kimberly Betty
I am one of developers behind Approval Path for Jira.
We do expose API, you can find docs here: https://warsaw-dynamics.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/APFJ/pages/21659649/API
With Jira Automation you can call our API to start approval when issue does transition.
You can contact us here:
where we can help you with your specific case.
Hi @Kimberly Betty ,
welcome to the Atlassian community!
On click is a client side event and the automation works at server side. You need to ask to Approval Path for Jira team if that operation raise some event at issue type so that you can intercept it in an automation.
Hope this helps,
