checklist for jira

Hi there, is there a possibility for a Definition of Ready and Done checklist where the items can be set per project. We have about 300 projects in JIRA where not all Definitions are the same. It takes to much work to do create a checklist for DoR and DoD per issue and catching all the DoR and DoD for each project as a Global standard is undo-able. Do we need another plugin. We have also the custom fields plugin and we really like it that we can set validations if all items are checked in an transition.


Hopeflly you can help me.

Hi Maarten,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to create "per project" Checklists. While far from being perfect solutions, I see 2 potential area to explore to go around the problem:

  1. Create templates and have the issue creator use them to fill the Checklist upon creation. 
  2. Use labels and post-functions to populate the checklist after the issue creation.

Hope it helps,



templates is not working for us.

and labels and postfunctions means that I need to create more workflows.


There isn't any planning on making this available on project level templates?


I know there is one other addon but he is only in the cloud available who made this. So it is possible.
