call move issue wizard

Hi experts, 

I need to call move issue wizard during a transition. I need to do some checks and collect values for some extra custom-fields and then call the move issue wizard. Is there an easy way to do that without writing our own plugin?

Thanks in advance for your help,

No, you'll absolutely need a plugin, and in fact, I'm not sure you can even write one to trigger it - you probably need to alter core code.

I'd also forget the idea of moving an issue during a transtion - it's not in a state where you want to trigger the move as the "wizard" will use the old values you've got on it.

Hi Nic, 

thanks for your comment. If there's no other way for doing this, is there a way to convert "move issue" link to a seperate button like the transition buttons. 



Not convert, without fiddling with some system files, but you could write a web-fragment plugin that could add it as a button, I believe.
