How can I call a java script on WorkflowTransition?


I'm on JIRA 5.1.8 and I have a JavaScript plugin which has custom JS which is loaded depending on the project. The JS is loaded fine on issue creation and issue Edit as required. Now I have a situation where I need it remove the Edit Permission but then have an 'Edit' workflow step to allow users to edit an issue. The Edit step will have a normal Edit screen but this has several fields which should only load up based on my JS.

My question is how can I load up the JS during this workflow transition? Below is the code I attempted. loadMyJS() is the function that contains all the JS I need.

if($('#issue-workflow-transition-submit').val() =='Edit')

Hi @Gaj Umapathy,

I'm trying to do the same thing as you.
I need to load some JavaScript on workflow transition, but I can't seem to find anything to work with.
I've tried using different contexts but it doesn't work.

Did you ever find a solution for this?
Please do share if you did, any help would be highly appreciated.


Thanks and regards,
