I have the following workflow:
Open > Design > Development > Testing > Testing UAT > Closed
I want to know if the following this can be done:
1) Only allow users to create sub-task in the states: Design, Development, Testing
2) When an user creates an issue in one state, the sub-task goes to Open. But I want that the sub-task to be created in the same state as the issue parent.
I've been reading but I don't find a solution or an impediment to do this things.
I'm not sure how it works with Nic suggestion, but just want to share with you something that for writing JIRA event listeners, you can have a look at:
1) Yes and no.
To start with, the yes - all you do is define a new workflow, which has "Create" go to "Design". You then create a "workflow scheme" that says "for top level issues, use old workflow, and for sub-task types, use the new one". Associate that with the project, and you're done.
But the "no" bit - a workflow has one single entry point. You can only Create issues in one status. So it will ALWAYS be "design" in the scheme I outlined above.
2) You can't do this. Issues are created in one status.
But... answer 3... what you can do for both question 2 and the "no" in question 1: Find or write a "listener" that will spot sub-task "create" events, scan the parent for what that status is, and then push the sub-task into the right status.
