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.

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!
