Is there any way to get notification if linked issue (not sub-task) changed its status?

Hi @Vassili Gorbenko

when an issue changes status by workflow action an event is fired. You can configure who gets that event in the notification schema.

you can use custom events in a workflow to refine the configuration

plugins like scriptrunner can allow you  to conditionally fire custom events

Hi @tom lister, will it work for case when issue A status changed and linked issue B assignee will receive notification about issue A status change? Speaking in a business requirements language issue B assignee have no relation to issue A and don't knowanything about it, but need to stat work on issue B, when issue A is closed.

Hi @Vassili Gorbenko

I would use scriptrunner or similar to achieve this.

Write a groovy post function that will be processed when the issue A status is changed. Post function will go through the links to issue B's and make a transition on issue B which will fire a notification. You can create a link type with a name  you will specifically use to identify all links being processed or some other criteria.

Thanks! Will try.

Hi @Vassili Gorbenko 

Did you succeed in doing this?

I need the same functionality.




Hi there,

@Thomas Hansen @Vassili Gorbenko I am interested in this functionality as well!

Any news on that?

Thanks in advance!
