Change issue type automatically on transition

In some cases I would be nice to change the issue type on transition.

For instance when you made an estimation and the issue is approved it would switch to task. Sadly enough I can't find that option.

Is this possible at all?

You can't do this natively, you'll need to find/write a plugin that can change the issue type as part of a listener or post-function.

This is potentially a very complex process though - a new issue type can have different fields and workflows and need to check and validate all sorts of data associated with the issue before it's possible. I'm not aware of any plugins that can do this

Though I can't find the option indeed, thanks for explaining.

I don't understand the goal of this. Could you eliaborate more?

Even I am looking for a similar option. I have created different issue types for different customers for e.g. A-bug B-bug ... so the user creates the bugs but then in post function i want to change the issue type from bug to a-bug / B-bug depending on the customer. so that I can then have different workflows for different set of issue types

The same answer applies - it's not *just* a change of a field, you have a whole load of structural work to do as you make the change, and you'll need to write it yourself because there isn't anything out there.
