Hi @Parsa Mounika ,

I see, via the screenshot, that you are using our app: Checklist for Jira. Typically, the best way do to that is via context but you mention that you can't because you already have a project selected.

You can obviously create 3 different custom fields to bypass the project limitation and then control their visibility on the issue screen via apps such as script runner, or have different workflow for each issue types with different screens. However, this is kind of complex.

If you don't mind having the checklist items on the issue creation screen, you can then use our Workflow function to add the items on the create transition. This way, you can have 3 different workflow functions with a JQL condition that target a specific issue type.

That will result in having different checklists for stories, tasks, improvements, etc.

You are also welcome to reach out via our support portal and we will be happy to help you if you have more questions.



Hi @Yves Riel _Okapya_ 

I want those values to appended in the checklist while creating an issue. What ever you have suggested it is reflecting after the issue is created in view screen.

After issue created



In the 2nd pic the values which are in blue color should append when creating the issue to the checkbox list.

Hi @Parsa Mounika ,

Then using the workflow function would be perfect for that. The function will add the new items (in blue) after the issue has been created.

Give it a try and if you have problems, reach out to us via our support portal.

You need to set different context for each issue type. you can set a context for issue type OR project, but not both. 

But I can't create different context if there is already a context is created on the project.
