Custom Story Checklists

We do design reviews/preliminary risk analysis on stories that get developed. Currently we are using an xls checklist, with ~20 rows, to capture this information and attaching it to the related stories.


This list includes a number of items that we check the story against (such as documentation needs), specific actions related to this item, and the responsible party.

Is there a plugin that you know will help us with this? We've considered Profields and iGrid but are unsure if either of those will fully address this need.

Not sure it will completely address your needs but you may want to take a look at the Checklist plugin. The checklist may have by default the text in bold and the user can complement the description before checking out the item.

Thanks, we'll try this out and see if helpful

For Cloud environment, you could try Issue Checklist plugin. 

It allows applying default checklist for new issues in given project and also blocking issue transition (e.g. resolving) if not all checklist items are completed. 


Hi Meraj,

You can try Smart Checklist Jira plugin:

It provides you with exactly what you were looking for:

  • Managing several tasks within one Jira issue by creating checklists
  • Changing an item's status (within the checklist) from ToDo to In Progress, or Done.
  • View the issue progress from the Agile board, as for example 12/30, where 30 - the total number of items on the list, and 12 - the completed one's.
  • You can also use the editor which support Markdown formatting syntax (which is good for creation of big lists with headlines and groups) 

If you have any additional questions about the plugin, please let me know!
