Test 1 (which DOES work):
Created a test project using the Jira default workflow. Created a ticket, closed it, replied to the notification through email & it was reopened. Created the listener as follows:
Then there's the actual project with custom workflow with listener that DOESN'T work. 61 is the reopen transition in the workflow. Status 4 is closed. There are no validators and the only condition on the transition is jira-users, which I am a member of. It's a new, not yet used project, so the only permission set is for the developers role and I am in that role.
I cannot get the closed ticket to reopen when I send an email, if I comment directly in Jira, if I fill in all the other options in the listener with false. I even tried changing the action & status IDs in the listener to the defaults, just to see.
Finally, I copied the Jira default workflow and changed it around to better fit what I needed, but keeping the IDs at the defaults. Now this listener DOES work.
So I'm feeling like the autotransition doesn't work unless the IDs are kept at the defaults in the workflow. Annoying, but generally do-able. We are on Jira 5.2.4.
Any comments about this?
Strange, did you have multiple custom workflows bind with different issue types as it need the specified transition id from the workflow used? You also need to ensure the transition ID/ Action ID belongs to the Closed status to ensure the ID can be located by the listener when in Closed status.
In the past, Portfolio for Jira required a high degree of detail–foresight that was unrealistic for many businesses to have–in order to produce a reliable long-term roadmap. We're tur...
