I set-up a global transition as CLOSE with Destination step as CLOSED.
It works well but also shows up as a transition when the issue is already transitioned to CLOSED status. I want the close transition to not be displayed when issue reaches CLOSED status.
Can anyone help me with this.
Thanks Henning. That worked. I never realised I didn't have that pugin for I was using some other conditions as part of that plugin. Installed and got the option for VALUE FIELD.
Set up as FIELD = Status != Value= Closed compared as String.
Works perfect.Though I still wonder why one needs Global transition to be also present at the destination step by default. A global transition should be present for all steps other than destination step.
Thanks again everyone.
You mean it appears in a place where there is already a transition to Closed status? You won't be able to remove the global transition from there but you will have to remove the other transition.
If CLOSED is the destination status, the global transition won't appear from CLOSED status. It will appear everywhere else.
There is no other transition from Status=CLOSED. I even removed any transition comin into CLOSED.
Created a global transition called CLOSE with Destination Status = CLOSED. When viewed in TEXT, there is a transition shown as Close from Status= CLOSED - to Status=CLOSED.
I expected as you said that a Global transition should be present from every status to the destination status but not on the Destination status itself.
Yes. I had expected it to be present all steps except destination but tried a few times and the same result.
the description for Global transition does say 'a global transition is a transition from any step to 1. Destination step OR the current step (return to Step)'
Looks like its not OR but AND.
IMHO the important part of this description is "from any step" and this includes the target step. The *OR* corresponds to the possible target steps.
For me, this is the more flexible way, because I can restrict starting steps easily through a condition. If it won't start from the target step, there would be no way to establish this if I want it.
You can add another condition and make them Grouped condition with AND. will look like below in Jira 6.4+ All of the following conditions The field Status will have to be not equal to value 'Closed'. Compared as String. The field Status will have to be not equal to value 'Closed'. Compared as String. The setting will be as below (repeat same for Resolve) [Go to Transition Condition and Choose 'value Field'] Field : Status Condition : != Value : Closed Comparison Type : String NOTE : In earlier JIRA, you will have to make them a grouped condition with AND
