How to create a workflow property?

I have a requirement that I need to create a workflow property same like

jira.field.resolution.exclude but it should depend on Issue Type.

Could it would be possible? If yes, please suggest the approach.

i don't believe it is possible to build custom properties like this.

you may have a look at this Question:

What will this new property do ? do you want the options in resolution field based on issue type or you want to set the resolution based on issuetype ?

You can add the post function 'Update issue field' on the resolve issue transition which will set the resolution and hide the resolution field from the resolution screen .

EDIT : Assuming you have separate workflows for each issue type

Hi Mizan,

I want to set the options in resolution field based on issue type,

Then I tried "jira.field.resolution.exclude" attribute. But each issue type need to be defined a separate workflow.

so to meet such requirement, can we create custom workflow property?

or can we programmatically set the existing jira.field.resolution.exclude property

Hi Bharadwaj ,

This is not possible .. even if we set the workflow property programmatically , the workflow is shared by all issue types .. so this wont help .

What is the issue with separate workflows ? you can copy the existing workflow rename them and associate to each issue type.

Hi Mizan,

This property should set the resolution based on issuetype.

Maybe I am missing something obvious but you just need to have different worflows for different issuetypes I guess?

Define the property with different values in those workflows.
