Is that a way to set a specific status after creating an issue


Now I got "To Do" but I need "Backlog" one to see that in the specific column on kanban board without moving manually every time after creating

Hey John,

You could created a new Status called Backlog and place it before ToDo in the workflow.   All new created issues would be in Status Backlog then.  You would have to transition them to from Backlog to ToDo then.

This widget could not be displayed.

The "create" transition only has one end-poin, so you always end up with the status set by your workflow.  It sounds like you need to get the workflow changed so you create in "backlog" instead.

The other option is to use one of the "fast track transition" functions in one of the add-ons that has them, so that you create the issue and then they (conditionally) move it on to another status.
