thanks for your message.
Mohammed is quite right as above. Any of those apps should do the job for you.
From the perspective of Automation for Jira - the rule would look like this:
*When Issue Transitioned to 'In Progress'
*Issue Condition: If label contains 'XYZ'
*Transition the issue to 'Status ABC'
Keep in mind, depending on how your board looks, you might need to add more 'Transition actions'.
So for example:
Transition the issue from 'In Progress' to 'Review'
Transition the issue from 'Review' to 'Done'
and so on.
Hope that helps!
Thank you for your example. It works very well when I create an issue on the board. If I plan an issue in the backlog and assign it to a teammate then I always have to manually move it to the board "move to baord". Can I also move it with Automation for jira as soon as it is assigned to a team member? or is that not possible because the backlog is only for planning purposes?
glad that helps.
Your second use case is definitely possible also. There aren't many restrictions to what you can do.
What you would need to do is create a rule that looks like this:
*Issue Created Trigger
*If Status equals Backlog
*And assignee is "bob"
*Then transition the issue to XYZ
Hope that helps!
@John McKiernan Is there a way to do this with the Kanplan Backlog?
When I try to create an automation there is no way for me to determine Status: Backlog -- it only shows me Statuses from my Board, the Backlog is excluded. Seems like the Kanplan Backlog status is invisible to automation. Would be really helpful to have this functionality.
I have the same issue. There is no way to set the statuses "in backlog" vs "on board".
The existing statuses also don't have any impact on whether an issue appears on the board or stays only in the backlog. An issue can be "in progress" while still being in the backlog.
This is wrong but there is no way to stop it.
Its definitely a gap at the moment. Ideally I'd like to be able to set in automation rules if the card appears in a Board or in Backlog. That way I could customise with rules that if status of todo is set and Assigned, then automatically move to display on the board. If Done and resolved for over a week, remove from Board. I'm trying to set up a project right now, and this is starting to annoy me enough to go back to a classic project.
@John McKiernan any update? I want to automatically move a certain issue type from backlog to board (Kanban) on issue creation, e.g. Create Task > move task to Kanban board immediately. Unfortunately, the current default is Backlog.
I have Backlog and Board enabled, but not Sprints. It's been 6+ months since an update. Would appreciate some news. Thank you very much.
Thanks @John McKiernan. Looks like AUT-2037 has been in your backlog since last September. Would be nice if you could prioritise it to ship in line with the Coming Soon feature New Board and Backlog Filters in team-managed projects found at https://www.atlassian.com/roadmap/cloud?status=comingSoon&. Hopefully, we won't have to wait too long.
If the issue tickets had an editable selector for Backlog vs Board, it would go a long way to improving on this problem. Lack of visibility from ticket to Backlog/Board setting is the main pain point for me. Any given ticket, if I want to confirm it's on my Board, I have to go filter the Backlog. I should be able to see on the ticket itself which one it's in, and ideally make changes from within the ticket. And, this is a small thing with big impacts. I for one waste a LOT of time on this missing process.
You have to use an app. The idea is the following :
