Automatic workflow transition


We use a workflow for open points. Every user can create new issues, the next state is "checked by project leader". But when the project leader add a new issue, he will step over the state "checked by project leader" directly to the following states. Can it be possible?

I did not know that the Script Runner has a script called "Fast-track transition an issue". That is what I want.

You could also use the auto="true" option in the xml. e.g. if reporter=project lead, then auto transition to the checked state

If you are using JIRA Server 6.3.3 (or later) or JIRA Cloud plus at least one of the following:

  • Stash 3.2.0 (or later)
  • FishEye/Crucible 3.5.2 (or later)
  • GitHub Enterprise 11.10.290 (or later)
  • Bitbucket
  • GitHub

you can configure triggers for your workflow that will automatically transition issues when events occur in your development tools (e.g. commit created).

See for details.

You can use JIRA Toolkit plugin as it has the Auto-transition Listener.

And now the JIRA Automation add-on from Atlassian
