Process Creation

Hi, I wanted to know if it is possible to create sophisticated business processes with jira workflow creation tool. Created similar processes that you can create in power apps or K2 forms and views?

Hi David - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I would say yes, it can - but that depends on what you mean by your definition of sophisticated. If you have an example of one such type, we could weigh in on that. 

Hi John, please look at the below scenario:

  1. A workflow which has a form, this form has validation fields. In fact, more than one form with different fields but uses one workflow.
  2. On the form, you can hide different fields depending on the user.
  3. The form must have buttons (e.g Submit, this submit button must also validate fields before submission), which when clicked can move the process to next step of the workflow.
  4. Form must be able to manipulate data (like mathematics manipulation and so on. On K2, this is done via views and smartforms, a bit different from Power Apps.
  5. Must be able to attach documents on the form and validate if not attached.
  6. Must allow pop up message for successful submission, or in some compulsory field is not inputted.
  7. Fields must be saved on a DB
  8. Must support drop down field (if employee is Junior, Intern, Perm etc). This drop down can either be static data or dynamic from DB

    Please look at this link and let me know if you can build such. No need to go in detail since it can waste your time but just do a scan through.
    Workflows: workflow example (5min) 

Please see form image example below, and bare in mind each field is connected to a DB field, starred field mean mandatory!
