In Jira classic projects my team used the workflow transition screens to prompt team mates to confirm or complete actions.
For example, we had a transition screen that brought up a free text custom field called "Public Release notes". The user had to complete the field as it was mandatory to transition the story.
Our technical writers then used a search filter to find all the public release notes text populated in the custom fields, to review and prepare our release notes.
We're piloting next-gen at the moment, and I can't see anywhere to replicate this behaviour. I see in rules that you can force an automatic update of a field upon a transition. However, currently, it appears there is no way to bring up a transition screen and/or force users to take a non automated action as part of the transition workflow. Is this correct?
Are there thoughts around bringing something in to address this kind of need?
Unfortunately, JIRA Next-gen does not support any kind of workflow customizations, as transition functionalities (Post functions, Validators, Condition or Screens).
In fact, the Next-gen project template was created with the intent to provide a simpler and limited option for those customers who felt overwhelmed by the complexity of Classic projects features.
That been said, other customers have also requested for this feature in next-gen too, so we created the following feature request to let our developers know this necessity and consider it in future releases:
Feel free to vote and watch the suggestion to increase its priority and also receive any updates.
Let me know if you still have any other questions.
