HI There -
I want to know, is there any way where i can define an attachment for eg a .xls file to be added to EVERY JIRA which anyone created in my project. So, when ever a person creates a JIRA in my project he should have a predefined .xls file attached to the JIRA by defalut.
The reason i want to do this is : I am attaching a checklist in the JIRA just to ensure that everyone fills it. This check list contains points like:
1> did you add the code review to the JIRA
2> Did you add your unit test cases et.all
I am not very much well versed with JIRA can you let me know how can I add a seperate tab in the JIRA issue create screen ?
Secondly, I dont know if i can make these columns mandatory the reason being, these things will come once the person is going to mark the JIRA as resolved.
But never the less, please let me know how can I add the seperate tab and i will see if i can do somthing there.
Thanks for your help on this
That's a very good point - from the technical side, you're divorcing your data into two independent parts - Jira and excel, you won't be able to use the stuff in excel, report on it, or search for it easily.
On the human side, the data in excel won't be useful - many of them won't bother to fill it in, and complain about having to open up excel to make simple changes. It's static and they won't be able to search it.
You'll end up with vast swathes of half-filled, or even pointlessly empty Excel files littering up Jira's file system, with no use for the vast majority of them.
I dont think this is possible in JIRA. What you can do is that you can apply some HTML links to a custom field's Description. In those HTML links, you link them to the attachment download. So they can just click on the link, and the file download will start. Much like a normal attachment, only that the file is hosted somewhere else, and is linked to JIRA via the HTML in the custom field description.
Kerem - Thanks for the solution which you have given and Nic for making it more understandable, As per company policy we cannot do this on our own so i have raised a request to get it done hopefully i should be able to do it in next 4 days.
I am yet to see the out put but it seems it will definately help us.
I woul really like to thank you all for this ....
