I'm setting up my first JIRA installation now. A critical piece to our workflow is to seek customer approval for work to be done. I think I can get there with associating a screen with a workflow transition, but how can I notify the customer that the issue is waiting on them to approve it.
Make sure the customer exists as a user
Come up with a way of identifying them on the issue - are they the reporter? Could you assign it to them? A user picker? Watcher? (Just the basic ideas - how you do it is up to you!)
Create a new "event" like "needs to be approved"
Change your workflow so that it has a "waiting for approval" status, and the transitions that go IN to this status have a post-function that "fires an event" (which, obviously, should be "needs to be approved")
