Are you leading an Agile team? Or perhaps you’re more on the Ops or Business front in HR/IT? If either is true, you can easily make Jira work for you.
Chances are you already use the Smart Checklist for Jira add-on. If you don’t, get it right now. It’s great for Acceptance Criteria, Definition of Done, Jira checklists, onboarding, and other to-do lists.
In this article, we’re going to explain how you can get more out of your checklists. We’ll do it by adapting them to your processes with the popular add-ons for workflow automation:
If you want it to be done per issue type, Smart Checklist has this feature available out of the box.
What if you’re setting up a checklist for the service desk? You’ll probably need to apply a specific process to a newly created issue with Request Type.
It can easily be done by setting up an Automation Rule by Automation for Jira. To be specific, you’ll need to do the following:
Let’s suppose you want a certain checklist to be added to a newly created Jira ticket depending on the value of another custom field. You can easily do it by adding "Script Post Function" from Script Runner to your Create Ticket workflow transition.
This may be really useful if you extend your Service Desk processes and want to set up proper checklists for a specific “Request Type”. In this example, a proper checklist is added depending on an "Environment" custom field that’s filled when a new issue is created.

Your engineers have completed an engineering-related checklist. Now the ticket is ready to be moved to the QA state for the proper testing by the folks from Quality Assurance. What you can do is simply append a QA checklist to an already existing checklist. You can do it with Jira Misc Workflow Extensions (JMWE), Nunjucks script (Cloud), and Groovy Script (Server and Data Center).

This can easily be achieved by using Automation for Jira. You could add a “Compare Condition" automation block and evaluate “Smart Checklist Progress” field against the regular expression (^$|.*Done).
Check the full instructions.
ScriptRunner can be used for hiding separate UI elements on your Jira tickets based on different conditions. This way, you can hide Smart Checklist visibility on your Jira instance for specific user groups/roles/ticket types.
Smart Checklist for Jira can easily be integrated into your Jira projects for Cloud, Server, and Data Center instances. You may also extend it with third-party tools to further improve the processes for your team.
