Transition trigger: previous status (codebarrel automation)

Hi,

Is there a way to reference the previous status of the trigger issue on an issue transition rule, using codebarrel`s automation tool?

I`m trying to write a rule that moves sub-tasks of an issue along with the parent, but only if they were at the same status to begin with.

Best regards,

Carlos Jourdan

Hey Carlos,

Yes you should be able to achieve this with the 'Field value changed' trigger:

Project automation - Code Barrel JIRA 2017-02-11 13-10-05.png

  • Trigger: Field value changed for 'status'
  • Then branch for 'Related issues' subtasks
    • Check that the sub-task {{issue.status.name}} equals {{fieldChange.fromString}}  (a special value that's populated by the Field value changed trigger with the 'old' parent status
    • Then if that's true, transition the sub-task to the parent status

 

Hope that works for your use-case!

Cheers,

   Andreas
