I want to have multiple golbal transitions to the same status, but the workflow editor won´t let me create them.
The reason is, I want to have dirrerent conditions and different post-functions. Using common transitions totally messes up the view workflow display, so I don´t want to do this.
I could export the workflow and create the global transitions in the XML - but I really don´t want to do this
Hope someone knows a quick fix...
I've created global transitions in this way but I've needed to make a little trick.
1.- Firts you must define the new global transition from graphical workflow interface but selecting a different status as final statusm (one status without global transition associated).
2.- Second, you must change to the text workflow interface and edit the global transition to change the destination status. In text workflow interface JIRA don't prevent you from having 2 or more global transitions with the same destination status.
3.- The workflow works ok
The same information can be found here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+workflow+configuration#Advancedworkflowconfiguration-common_transitions Note: I added a status to my workflow (since all of my other statuses had global transitions). Followed the instructions and then deleted that status and it worked fine.
I suppose you have too many status to instead create the transitions between the status and this globally-accessible status individually?
The question is, if JIRA - even if you would force it using the XML or any other way - is capable of handling multiple global transitions to the same status with different conditions and post-functions. Considering it does work though, it's also a matter of how the workflow viewer would display it and if this workflow is in any way maintainable for (other) administrators.
There are not too many statuses - the thing is there are two different global transitions to close an issue I.e. - reporters can close with resolution set to canceled - developers can close, but have to give a reason and select a resolution Conditions in validators and post-functions would also do the trick, but as they are not there this seems for me the way to go...
