Default issue status per board


We have a kanban board for our backlog as well as a scrum board for our sprints/development process. When standing in the scrum board, ideally I want the issue to be created with default status "Open", whereas when standing in kanban board, the issue should be created with default status "Submitted".

Is this possible? Currently all our issues gets created with status "Submitted" because the workflow's default status is "Submitted", regardless if you're creating it inside an active sprint, the sprint's backlog or the kanban backlog.

No, the workflow only has one "create" point.

The best you could do is an automatic transition from the create status to another one, but I'm not sure how you could detect which board was used to trigger the create.

I see, is there anywhere where I can make suggestions to JIRA what they should implement?

But be aware that Atlassian have closed down similar requests before.
