Managing Approval Process through JIRA

Hi All,

 

I'm handling the JIRA administrator role in the company, I need your answers on below question. Please kindly reply for this if your know how to do it.

1. Business User Creating a TASK issue in a JIRA scrum software project.

2. Then he need to assign it to Head of the department to get APPROVE/REJECT status(This Can be a Single Drop down list).

3. Once Head of the department approved the TASK, it should assign to CEO of that user.

4. CEO also can APPROVE/REJECT the request, if he APPROVED, it should assign to relevant Product Owner.

5. Product Owner then APPROVE/REJECT the request, if he APPROVED, it should assign it to relevant Scrum master.

I would like to know.....

  1. Can i achieve this using a WORKFLOW?
  2. Or each user need to manual select the next user(Assignee) and that user can select the field and give the approve or reject.
  3. If the request approved, can it automatically assigned to relevant user?
  4. Or do you have any suggestions on that?

After going through few video tutorials, Finally i found a solution, i able to achieve the requirement through workflow.

To automate all of this, you can create script post function in workflow step using Script Runner Plugin.
Dependency of department head/CEO/product owner
(or maybe  Department/CEO/product) you can store as Issues of some project.

I want to do this without using plugins, please tell if so.

Create different steps APPROVE for each Head of departments.
in each step add post function "Update Issue Field" and set assignee to specific CEO. Different Approve steps for different product owners similarly.
But with coding it will be better.

I did what you said, yes once the TASK issue been created, it's automatically assigned to Head of the department, but after that how it will be done?, how it will handle in workflow. Since once the Head of the department is logged into JIRA and when he see the dashboard, that task will be assigned under him, but the problem is where to put next step?

 

I have this attached standard workflow in the project and other screens.

Workflow is possible. But you should have master data for each employee , who will be the department head/CEO/product owner. If this master data is available, workflow can be configured.

Master data is available, can you please tell me how to configure this required workflow by easy steps?

you have to create master project and save all the department heads/CEO/Product owner details and write a plugin to read the data from these masters basing on the requester. 

New plugin will be required. 

 

Alternative is you can use (calculated text field of) below plugin and try

If you don't want to use any plugins then , i feel your point2 (each user need to manual select the next user(Assignee) and that user can select the field and give the approve or reject.) will be the option
