How to add Open button option to Jira story so that will not Open automatially after creation?

As per Current configuration of JIRA: a  Story goes into 'In Progress' status immediately after I hit create button.

My expectation is:

It will be created in Pending status and stay in Backlog

I should have ability to assign it to current Sprint/ iteration (based on type of project)   and then Open it manually by pressing 'Open' button

 

At this moment I do not have this button at all.

You have set up your workflow to have "in progress" as the landing status for the "create" transition.

All you need to do is edit the workflow and change the landing point to land it in "pending" instead.

Nic Brough Thanks for your feedback.

Landing status of my current WF is 'TO DO'. In Edit Mode I see 'Add Status' option that has a list of different t statuses. There is no 'In Progress' , I have 'In Review' .

Is it the same?  Should I replace To Do with In Review.

Current scheme is:

Create - >To Do

In Progress

 Done

This is not what you said earlier. You said the workflow is Create -> In Progress, not to-do. I don't understand what you want with your current contradictory data, but the advice still stands - work out where you want create to land, and make sure it lands there.

 

Trying to dissect your question one by one.

  • In the JIRA Administration > Issues >  Issue Attributes > Statuses page, you must create the transition "Status" first in order for it to appear in the choices of statuses. Create the status you like here. Then in your workflow, you can just add a transition named "Open" which will transition to your desired status. If you are using the JIRA Simple Workflow, adding a status is just simply clicking the "Add Status" button in the Boards Configuration > Columns page.

My expectation is:

It will be created in Pending status and stay in Backlog

  • Follow Nic's suggestion above. In the "Create" transition, map it to the status that you like.

 

I should have ability to assign it to current Sprint/ iteration (based on type of project)   and then Open it manually by pressing 'Open' button

 

  • Issues will only appear in a board depending on what is configured in the Boards Configuration > Columns page. Checkout what statuses they are, remove the initial transition that you like so that they won't appear in your board immediately.
