I'm trying to configure workflow in JIRA 5.x would like the workflow can work like this:
Suppose there are 2 upcoming status for the Create issue, and here is the steps for them:
Create issue-> Status 1->Status2.
And two persons named Person A and Person B, both of them can create issues.
On one hand, after Person A create an issue, the status of this issue would be Status 1, and then Person B make a certain transition, finally the status of the issue would be Status2.
On the other hand, after Person B create an issue, the status would be Status 2, which means the issue would skip Status 1 and go directly to Status 2.
Is it possible to do it? If yes, what do I need to do then?
Thanks in advance,
Not really. You create an issue, it has to go to one status. I suspect this is because it's immensely complicated to have floating targets in workflows, it's far easier to stick to something basic and clear and then build on that.
There is a basic way to work through this - first, make your workflow have transitions from "initial step" to any others you want to land on, and then use a listener to catch the "create" event and automatically push it through that transition. I've used the one in the Jira toolkit to do this a few times, but there are other plugins that make such listeners available - like the one Radu talked about.
