In your transition, add post function " Fire an event that can be processed by the listeners"

It has the post function the last functions says this"Disparar un evento Evento genérico que puede ser procesado por escuchadores.(Spanish)" all the transitions have this


selct your custom event or one of JIRA's system events :Issue
Assigned, Issue Moved,...

Hi Alejandro,

Use Issue Notifications Schemes.

You can also configure a custom notification if what you are not looking for is not in one of the events provided by JIRA. Documentation available at

Follow this:

1. Go to Administration

2. Click on Events

3. Create a new Event called "Status Changed"

4. Go to your project's notification scheme and select the group or project role that needs to be notified when the issue status is changed

5. Go to your workflow and add this event on every transition post-function



Or alternatively, you can just set a custom messenger configuration with this add-on

and set it to fire when an issue (in one or another project) changes it's status or whatever condition you may have.

What is a benefit for us is that you can set it up to send a slack notification as well
