I'm trying to build a workflow in a new project that has an approval step.
In a Service Management project, this is built-in functionality and is as simple as choosing a checkbox and filling in some details. When I try to do so in a Work Management project, the option doesn't exist.
I've even tried adding the properties manually to the WM project that exist in the SM project.
It didn't make a difference.
I know that I can add a condition to each outgoing transition, but I'd rather use the built-in functionality of Jira which sends out emails to the approvers allowing them to approve from their phones.
Can anyone offer a suggestion short of creating a bunch of custom automations to replicate this functionality?
P.S. I'm constantly running into these ridiculous limitation differences between the three flavors of Jira and it's extremely frustrating. I don't understand why I need a plug-in for every basic use case.
Hi @Brock Jolet, the approval capability, as you have in service projects, is not yet available for other project types. There is a feature request in the Atlassian public issue tracker that you can vote on and add yourself as a watcher to receive notifications from now on.
You can get some additional insights on how you can implement that at Create conditional approval for a workflow in Jira server, which I'm sure you're familiar with it by now. As you mentioned, some apps could help you with that too.
I've seen similar questions and discussions around this before. I'm sure others will chime in with additional thoughts.
