I am looking to add a field that would be in a screen popping up when a defect/bug is transitioned from one status to another.
For example, if a bug is transitioned from "Open" to "Deferred", I would like a screen/popup to appear with a dropdown containing the following items for selection:
Fix in Future
Retest in Future Build
Similarly, when transitioning a bug from "Open" to "Fixed", I would like a similar popup to appear with a dropdown containing different options for selection.
How would I accomplish this in JIRA?
Every transition has the option when creating or editing it to add a screen to be presented during the transition. these are usually special screens only used for the transition. This is out of the box functionality. If you install the jira-suite utilities you can require a field be filled in during the transition.
Thanks Joe. Any insight into the 2nd part of the question? Can I relegate certain fields to appears for certain transitions only? For instance, I only want Option A, B, C to appear when transitioning from "New" to "Open" and I want Option D, E, F to appear when transitioning from "Open" to "Fixed"
Each transition has a option to define a screen and on that screen you can put any fields you want.
From new to open will be Transition A
From Open to Fixed will be Transition B
Thus 2 diff. transition and when you click on transition in jira, you can select a screen for that transition with the fields that you want.
