Issue Checklist multiple lists?

Recently added Issue Checklist as an addon to our cloud instance of JIRA but was wondering if there is the capability to have multiple checklists in a single issue?

You can visually split checklist into parts with "separator". 

"Separator" is a checklist item which text is preceded by three dashes "---". 

Nevertheless, technically it is still one checklist so, for example, you can block issue transition only when all items in all parts are completed. 

More about blocking transition:


Thanks Jack, simple, effective and at no cost!

Hi Lee,

You can try Smart Checklist Jira plugin:

It provides you with exactly what you were looking for:

  • You can use the full-screen editor which supports Markdown formatting syntax - and allows to create groups of lists under the main checklist. The groups are split by headlines.
  • You can also add details to each item on the list.

Hope, this information helps!

But can you block a transition based on a specific group of the checklist? And a different transition based on a different group?
