Combine issue create form and transition when create & linking

Probably this question ahs been asked before, but just to be sure.

I would like to have a transition 'escalate to development'. When the user initiates the transition, a popup form is presented allowing the user to create a new issue in a project. When he confirms the transition by clicking the 'create' button, the issue is created, and automatically linked to the originating issue.

When the user cancels, the transition fails, nothing is created.

How can this be configured ?

Hi Bob,

Will try it out.


How can you provide the user the option to select project and issue type.
Looking at the configuration screens, you can only specify a specific project.

Yes, specific project was just added in 3.6 based on a customer request. Same can be done for issue type and priority. It is pretty easy to do. Please open an issue to track that.

Bob - is it possible to setup the add-on such that the user can select in what project the issue should be created. If this is the case, how should it be configured ?

You would need to have a custom field visible on the transition screen to capture the to project value. Then order the post function to follow "Update change history for an issue and store the issue in the database" so the custom field is available with the new value. In the configuration, use variable replacement of the custom field in the specific project field.

Hi Francis,

Unfortunatly, with Exocet you cannot display a popup during a workflow transition. I am sure you can find some workaround, but for us a popup during a transition does not make sense. There is some kind of problems... What about a transition screen define in jira, you should display both popup ? And what about bulk operation (pass transition), you would display as many popup as issue to treat ?

It's certainly a thema on which we have to work, however for the moment we don't have a solution
