is there a way to move an issue but only allow it to move to the open status?

I would like to see if anyone knows of a way when moving issues from one type to another if there is a way to require that that after the move the ticket is in the open status?


Thank You

If you are not a Cloud user and can use ScriptRunner you can implement a Script Listener that will transition the issue back to Open when its type is updated.

That is kinda what I was thinking would come of this question. I am trying to avoid having to write a custom script. 


Thank You

You don't need to write a custom script. ScriptRunner has a "Fast track transition" listener that you can use.
