I have a project in mind to automate a manual process. Essentially what I need is the following:
My main question is: how can I do this?
1 and 2 are pretty much what JIRA does, you've basically described a JIRA issue which has a select list custom field.
3 I would do with the Script Runner - calculated fields are easy with that, although you might have "fun" with the "some other data" if it's in a non-JIRA database. If you don't use Script Runner, you can easily code the fields as their own add-on.
4 I'd write add-ons to provide reports, gadgets and displays to do this
I have been playing around with JIRA plugins, but tutorials stop working at some point. I found here that the tutorials are out of date and redirected me to Atlassian Spring Scanner. There, the link to the manual is broken but anyway I tried the example and ... well, it didn't work.
Which do you think would be the better approach to my original problem?
