2 transition with the same name

Hello friends,

 

It is possible to use the same name, for 2 different transitions:
ex. 

From Status A to status B transition name: Approved

From Status A to status C transition name: Approved

 

Could you please help me?

Hi @Cristian Ionescu ,

Yes, it is possible; but you need some extra efforts. 

  1. Add from Status A to status C transition name: Approved
  2. From the diagram-editor Add from Status C to Status C by reuse transition of point 1.
  3. Delete the transition from point 1.
  4. Add new transition From Status A to status B transition name: Approved
  5. From the diagram-editor Add from Status A to Status C by reuse transition of point 2.
  6. Delete the transition from point 2.

Hope this will help you and others. If so please accept the answer or let me know if you have any questions?

Thanks,

-Amit

Hello @Cristian Ionescu 

Yes you can have a same transition re used for issue moving to different statuses.

As a example I am attaching this screenshot for your reference. You can see that Close transition is used twice in the workflow.

Just to clarify, that only works if everything but the destination of the transition is identical. If Approve from A to B has different conditions, validators, post functions, etc. than Approve from A to C would (which is fairly common), then you can't re-use the transition, and you can't have two separate Approve transitions with the same name. 

This is one of the things that drives me nuts about Jira, as having transitions with slightly different names is confusing to our end users, who this should be transparent to.
