Validation when issue is added to sprint


We would like to improve the quality of issues in our sprints. We selected some prerequisites for the issue in order to be ready for a sprint. These are

  1. Story points must be set
  2. Business Value must be set
  3. Time estimation must be set

Can we validate these rules when an issue is placed in a sprint and show a warning?

Is it possible to put a kind of visual mark on the issue in the backlog, that it is "ready for sprint"?

I would add a workflow step/column called Ready for Sprint and add a validator in the workflow to execute the transition.

What I did in one of my project workflows is I did not enable the transition if the condition rules are not met to make it SOX compliant. So, if the field values are empty, do not enable the next transition. There is a Sprint field that you can validate in your workflow.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for your help

I still can not image how to restrict the Agile Board in Plan mode to allow access to sprints only for Issues in state "Ready for Sprint". May be you have any ideas?

Hi Mihail,

Workflow step would limit the column in the sprint planning. So, I think you can do that in couple ways:

1. You can setup issue security to make tickets private/public and add post functions to the workflow to change the issue security public and private before and after "ready for sprint" status.

2. You can setup a condition in the workflow and make the group assignee to veiw that step as a condition.
