I am trying to create a new status called 'draft' in a workflow. So when I create a new issue, I ahve the option as marking it in 'draft', so it is inactive as I amy be still gathering more information about it, or I just want to log it now and start it (make it active) at a later date.
I ahve created a step called draft in my workflow whcih transitions into 'open' but this does nothing.
I just started using Jira and any help would be appreciated.
To do this, please try to do the following:
If you still have any problems with this, you can raise a ticket on support.atlassian.com and one of our Engineers will be glad to assist you with this.
I think you need to think about how you get an issue into the "draft" status?
Do you create everything as a draft and then ask the users to move them to "open" when they're happy to? Or do you create new "open" issues and move them to "draft" if the users think they should be drafts?
Ah, sorry, I did not read your original post carefully enough.
Go into your workflow edit and look for the current "open" status. You'll see that one of the transitions into it is "Create" - click on that, and you'll be able to change the end-point from "open" to "draft". That will mean all new issues go straight to draft.
My apologies for the misread!
