Not allow issue to move into "In Progress" if...

We are using:

Jira Cloud (Next-gen project) (Kanban).

Is it possible not allow to move issue from "To Do" to "In Progress" if story point estimate filed is not filled?





1 answer

These things you would typically do from the workflow -- find the transition you want to limit, and add a Validator to it, something akin to "Story Points" required.

Then when you try doing this transition it will validate and stop it if story points are not filled in.


I would though be more cautious about what validators you add - this could make people put made up numbers just to skip it, which can start giving you wrong false velocity metrics.

Just to mention - make sure that the Workflow you are applying this to is used in only projects you want this validator for. If it's shared then you might want to make a copy of it so that the validator only really runs where it's supposed to without affecting others.

Well considering its a NG project it's probably not shared ;-)

All the better then and something for me to remember :D
