Workflow and Transitions

How would I create a transition for the following condition:

1) User creates a new STORY - status is set to Story Review

2) During the review process, the user sets the STORY POINTS to a value

  • If the value of the STORY POINTS is > 40 the JIRA Card (Issue) should be automatically moved to the status of SPLIT STORY (we will have constrants there that will ONLY allow the story to then be moved to a DONE state)

What we can figure out is how to automatically check the story for it's points estimation and thus set the status to SPLIT STORY should the points estimation be greater than 40.

You'd need scripting or a listener, neither of which are available in the cloud I believe

Joe's right... you can set two transitions and use a validator and/or Condition to insure the correct one is used but I don't know of any way to automate the move in the Cloud.

So my question is stemming from the Post Function "Transition" task, that essentially allows you to call another transition step, that second step has the necessary condition that should be checked and if valid it will alter the status.

I have this setup, but when it executes I get a strange error with really no detail to tell me what really happened.  Maybe if we could do a screen share I could show you exactly what I've done and you could tell me if I did it wrong or if it's simply not possible...

Hummm.... interesting approach. Show me the workflow section that implements this and the error message. Let me play with it and I'll touch base tomorrow.

I will need to reset this up, as we removed it and added a "manual" step for now since we could not get it to work but needed to get our new workflow out there.  As soon as I have it set back up, I will send you which workflow and at which step it occurs so you can play around, should be by the end of the day today.
