I'm trying to send an issue to one of two statuses based off of a value that the person sets on transition. Basically, the scenario is I am building an approval workflow where a request goes through 3 different approver steps. In this one step, 2 different people have to approve (and not in any particular order). So, if User A approves and sets that value to A, I want to transition the issue to a status that is "waiting for user B"..and vice versa. Any help would be appreciated.
Hey, thanks so much for the quick response. I should have provided a little more info though. This isn't for a project team, but is something we're delivering to business customers. So, we were hoping to avoid having to tell them to "Click Edit ->Go To the Review Tab -> Set the Field Value -> Click Update" series of events. So, we'd tried the method you recommend, but decided that wasn't the user experience we wanted. What we want is for the user to go to the issue, click approve, we pop up the intermediary screen, they say "User A Approves" or "User B Approves" and then Submit. This keeps them from having to go into the edit issue mode and find the fields they need to update and things.
We are actually open to using your ScriptRunner product if that would allow an easier way to do this. What we were thinking is that we would set a post-condition that would check the field (to see if it had value A or value B) and then route to status A or status B accordingly (when the user clicked to Submit their approval). Make sense? We just don't have the experience scripting for things like this. Thanks!!
No. Well, not directly. A transition only has one end-point. If you use transition A, it's always going to land in status A. With Script Runner, what you can do is detect the condition, let it transition to A and then immediately transition to B
However, I'd do it completely differently.
