I tried to search through the forum on this, but could not find any solution.
My user requirement is :
In the first stage of the workflow, the user puts in milestones for the project.
Eg: Milestone 1...Milestone n. (Here the number of milestones are not static)
In the next stage the user need to check in whether particular milestone has completed or not.
So the next user should get a screen something like
Milestone 1 Yes/No(This could probably a radio button.)
Milestone 2 Yes/No
Milestone n Yes/No
Kindly suggest how to achieve this in JIRA.
Also any other alternative which would help me in achieving the same would be helpful.
You can define milestones as subtasks and once a milestone is complete, the corresponding sub-task should be closed. This assumes that the project is logically represented by an issue.
You will need a separate issue type and workflow for the issues of type project and a separate "Sub-Task" issue type and workflow for milestones. This will also allow to mark a project release as complete (if you're trying to achieve some kind of release management) when all the "Milestone" sub tasks are complete.
The sub-task workflow will have two steps - No and Yes and initially the status will be No and the only transition will be from No to Yes.
This temporarily solves my problem. I am considering this as an alternative to what I wanted to achieve.
I am actually developing an investment initation template. Where a manager can initiate investment in JIRA which passes through different phases of the workflow. Ultimately there comes a point where a split of the investment details are listed down for initiator to update, which I call phase1, phase2, etc.
Now the initiator have to update whether each of the phase is completed or not and how much percent is completed.
If I am creating sub task for each phase, the initiator have to go to each subtask and close it separately. The number of sub tasks might grow from 5 to 25, which is a tedius task to do.
Eg. If the same thing when we want to achieve in excel, we might add columns as follows.
I would like to achieve the same in JIRA. Is it possible?<colgroup><col width="282"><col width="21"><col width="57"><col width="139"><col width="127"></colgroup>
|Phase Details||%||Amount||Updated by Manager||Updated by Officer|
|Phase 1:-Advance(on Submission of Invoice||20||640000||25.03.2014||Not Done|
|B) Phase 1A:- Configuration Sign-Off||10||320000||25.03.2014||Done|
|C) Phase 1B:- Configuration Sign-Off||30||960000||25.03.2014||Not Done|
|D) Phase 1A:- PM & GM GO-Live||10||320000||25.03.2014||Not Done|
|E) Phase 1B:- EC GO-Live||30||960000||25.03.2014||Not Done|
So you can achieve it through sub-tasks to some extend by modifying the columns displayes in the subtasks table for an issue and the user will be able to modify all subtasks from one page by editing them from the parent issue page.
Other solution is to use a commercial plugin like the one below which allows adding a custom field which is a table (excel like)
