I am writing a JIRA add-on that adds a button to the workflow buttons area. When the button is clicked I send a request to a REST API using JS.
I want that the issue gets 'greyed out' if I click the button so that the user is not able to take any actions anymore. If you go offline and click for example 'Assign' inside an issue, you will see what behaviour I mean. After the action has finished I want that the issue gets reloaded.
