Thanks a lot

Hi Reyes,

This is not possible in JIRA vanilla (out of the box), but may be implemented by using third party add-ons. Another alternative besides script runner would be the Minyaa plugin:




Hi Reyes,

Why don't you create it in the correct project to begin with?

Best regards,



you question is funny :) ... yes, it would be easier..... we have an special kind of project in which, depending of the user building, the project should be diferent.

The user is on the phone. The informatic ask we is he located and inform jira about the location (with a custom field) and JIRA should (automatically) select the correct project for this issue. We have a database table to asing buildings with projects.

Thanks a lot


You can do this using the script runner plugin. You need to write a post-function on create transition. The function checks the field and then triggers the move.

I havent done any code to move a task using groovy, but am sure this should be possible. Else if it is okie for you, post-function can create a task in correct project and close the current issue.

Let me know if you have doubts.


thanks a lot. I think I will do that.
