Can a workflow status change automatically when a field changes?

I want the workflow status of a JIRA issue to automatically change when a value has been entered into the Estimation field. Is there a way for me to automatically trigger the status change using JQL?


Ex: Project = SD AND Story Points != empty causes the workflow status to change

Colette, if you have the Adaptavist Script Runner Plugin - this is really, really easy.  They have what's called the "escalation service" which can periodically modify issues based on a JQL query, for instance: to change the state of issues if they have been inactive for 2 weeks.

I have an escalation service programmed to change a status when there are a certain number of custom fields populated.
