I am using JIRA Agile 6.4.2 and have created a custom workflow that a team is using. I have a number of statuses which are "In Progress" and I currently assign a single status to each column on the board. What I want to do is have multiple statuses per column.
Column1 has 2 statuses called "Build" and "Test". I want to be able to transition between those two statuses within Column1.
My workflow does allow for transitions between the statuses (it works great if you keep one status to one column). It just doesn't work if i put two statuses into one column. By saying "not work" i mean the status doesn't even show up even though its assigned to the column. I can't figure out how to get this working?
My workflow is custom, its not using the "Agile Simplified Workflow"
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
This may not be the best answer, but if you click on the issue, then type "." to bring up the action dropdown you can start typing the transition name and then select it.
Does having the two statuses in one column really add value to the team?
This is a long standing design flaw in the Agile addon. It does not support "move between status in the same column".
To get it working, you'd need to re-code part of Agile. Atlassian have said they are not going to do the work to enable this (despite around 200 requests in their issue tracker asking for it)
The closest I can get to a workaround is "use the keyboard shortcuts", but that feels inadequate to me.
