I've been searching a while and can't find this answer.
Does the Flag feature in Jira mean Impediment only, or could it mean anything you assign. If so, where do you assign
If I flag a story, how can I automate notifying the requester that the story was just flagged and why.
Hi @Cyril James,
The flagged field is a locked system field. So you cannot alter its configuration. It has only the impediment option and when you flag an issue, that value is selected.
While flagging an issue from a board, Jira offers you the option to add a comment. Depending on your notification settings, adding a comment can already send a notification message to certain people (as defined in your notification scheme).
You can also use automation to send a notification message, when responding to the issue edited trigger, where you can specify you want to specifically respond to the flagged field being updated.
Something I used to do quite commonly myself, was adding a list of flagged issues to a Jira dashboard, so it becomes easy to keep track of everything that is blocked - even across multiple projects.
Hope this helps!
