Change issue status on edit Edited


On a new workflow, I would like to be able to change automatically the issue status when a field was edited.

For example, I have 3 states : Draft, Ready and Approved. If I edit the description or the summary when the issue is in 'Ready' status, I would like to change automatically the issue status to 'Draft'.

Is it possible? If yes, can I do this only for some fields? I take a look to workflow triggers but I don't found anything according to this.

Thanks in advance for any help

You will need one of the scripting or automation apps to create a listener or automation that can pick up "issue edited", scan it for the right conditions for change, and issue the relevant transition instruction.

I have ScriptRunner. I will see how I can do this with a listener.

Thanks for your help.
