I have one workflow A--> B--> C--> D--> Closed 1 or Closed B
I need to run one issue through the workflow and upon it's reaching Closed 1 I use a post-function to create a linked issue which works great - however I need to be able to specify that it needs to start only in status C rather than A (where it does so by default).
Is there a way to, through a post-function or otherwise to modify the status of all such issue's which are created to be of a different status?
Thank you very much for any help you can give me.
since you added the label add-on jira-misc-workflow-extension, I assume you own this one.
This plugin has a post-function called "Transition linked issues". You have already created linked issues when you reach "Closed 1". So it is easy to transition that new linked issue from A to B and then from B to C with two post functions.
Thanks for your answer - and yes indeed I agree however I only want that automatic transition to happen for the linked issue not for the original (which runs through the same steps). How would one best differentiate the two and have them run differently through the same workflow?
Indeed that is true - however the original issue has to manually pass through A and B without automatically moving along to C, and that prior to reaching Closed 1. Thus the post-function on A & B would have to be able to differentiate between what is an original issue (which should manually go through each state) and what is an issue created through a post-function (which should bypass A & B automatically) and only 'fire' based on such recognition.
Ah - I didn't know that was possible ok, and no at the moment no specific transitions that should be excluded for a -b or b - c (is it possible to exclude such?)
In this case perhaps I should return to the drawing board - however I am not sure which type of transition to run things as a "remote control"? Transition Linked Issue?
Thank you very much for your insights.
