I've got a JIRA workflow that needs to be different depending on the issue type.
So after creation, it needs to go to a "For Verification" state if it is a bug, and to "To Do" if it's anything other than a bug.
I cannot have more than one transition from "Create" and there is nothing (I'm aware of) that allows to move the issue to another state automatically if certain criteria are met (I wanted to just forward everything that is not a bug to "To Do" as soon as it's put in "For Verification".
So the workflow is: Create/[Verification(if bug)]/To Do. Only bugs shall be verified anything else needs to skip that step. How can I achieve that?
The only solution I have now is to use two workflows but I don't want that - it's too much work maintaining two workflows.
Use Auto Transition Listener and transition issues of all other types to ToDo as soon as they are put in 'For Verification'.
That is what JIRA is meant for.
Define two workflows, one for bug and one for others. Configure your workflow scheme and associate the issue type with the workflow. Read https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Workflow+Schemes
Hey there, Elbe.
Sounds like you require quite an extensive customization for the workflow. I don't think JIRA has the ability to decide whether an Issue Type can determine the transition of the workflow. Having that said, can you try to look into the following plugin that might be able to offer what you are looking for:
Else, you can try to seek help from the Atlassian Experts to see whether they are able to advice you on this matter:
Definitely a case for two workflows.
You could think about messing around with a listener to perform a second transition, or have two transitions and write a condition that says "if issue-type X then allow/disallow this transition", but separate workflows require no code and that's pretty much what workflow-by-issuetype is for.
You can also use OSWorkflow's Conditional Result feature by editing your workflow XML directly. This is documented at https://innovalog.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JMWE/JIRA+Misc+Workflow+Extensions+Documentation (look for a large green box)
