Show - Hide workflow transition based on Issue type.

Tarun Sapra Community Champion Mar 06, 2013

Hello All,

Is it possible to -

Show - Hide workflow transition based on Issue type.

Use case - there are 5 issueTypes in a project that share the same workflow. Now a new request comes in to add a new transition for only one of the issueTypes. Currently only way seems to copy and tweak the workflow for that issueType and update the Workflow Scheme of the project?

is there an better and quicker alternative?

Thanks!

I highly suggest downloading JIRA Suite Utilities! It's free, and will allow you to do exactly what you want. I know since I have many examples of this requirement in my workflows.

After you install it (takes very little time, and no restart of JIRA required), do the following:

Go to your transition, and add a new condition. Select "Value Field".

Once in that screen, enter the following:

Field: 'Issue Type'
Condition: '='
Value: Exact name of your issue type
Comparison Type: 'String'

HI Amy, it's not working, I have the exact name of the issue type, still it's not workin'

Yes, you can put conditions on your workflow. ScripRunner (free), mine: JJupin (commercial), there are a lot others that can do that.

so is it possible to put a condition for a particular workflow transition to be visible only for a specific issue type?
