Hi, I have got users adding new stories to EPIC that have already been resolved/Done.
Can someone please help with how we can use the JMWE add-on to achieve this. Thank you !
this is only possible on Jira Server.
You need to add a "Parent Status Validator" on the Create transition of the subtasks (or shared) workflow, which is accessible in the graphical workflow editor (it starts from the large "dot"), and check the statuses the parent issue must be for the subtasks to be allowed to be created (basically all statuses except Done).
You can also specify a custom error message.
@David Fischer _Appfire_ Hi, is the below validator correct ? I added it at the create transition.
All issues linked to the current issue through the is Epic of (from Epic to Stories) link type must be in one of the following statuses: Open or To Do
The following message will be displayed if validation fails: The Epic is already closed. Select a different Epic.
But still doesn't work.
Hi @Aisha M
I tried implementing your suggested solution, but was still able to add an open child issue under a closed parent issue. Also, I was able to edit/reopen the closed issue.
Maybe you can explain what the user experience is supposed to be by adding that Property Name and Property Value to the Done Status?
@David Fischer _Appfire_ maybe you can clarify if you have a solution using JMWE? I am using Jira Data Center 8.5.5.
@Gil Vinokoor workflow properties are documented here: https://support.atlassian.com/jira-cloud-administration/docs/use-workflow-properties/
And when you tried, did you use "false" as the value (instead of "False" as Aisha improperly typed)?
I have found a traditional way to do it which does not require any addon.
Just by setting workflow properties in the Done status of the Epic workflow hides both the button ("Add Issues to Epic" and "+" button)
Jira workflow property key - jira.permission.create.denied
Jira workflow property value - denied
