Project status and phase

Our company splits a project in to a number of development phases (Proposal Phase, Define Phase, Construct Phase, etc) and a number of Admin statuses (Pending, Open, In-Progress, Invoiced, Closed, etc).

I would like to be able to tag or somehow indicate the current phase and status of the JIRA project. Also ideally I would like to be able to restrict certain issues from being created unless the project is in a certain phase.

I would expect to see a tab perhaps in the project browser view where I could view/edit the phase or status of the project.

I have tried to investigate ways of doing this, one option is perhaps using issue schemes, but I still want to be able to view the status/phase.

Also would be nice to see the status/phase in the Summary tab of the project browser view.

For this I ended up creating special issue types to indicate the transition of these project phases. If the special issue was closed then the project transition is considered complete.

You could use the Project Portfolio Management technique I describe in this post : http://www.petervandevoorde.com/2013/02/26/project-portfolio-management-with-jira-and-greenhopper/

It might help you out in the visualization departement.

Hi Mike, there was a nice idea in https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/47708/can-you-automatically-update-the-project-category-using-a-workflow to represent the current project status as project category.

So when a project goes through the different project phases, one would just assign a project category corresponding to the current phase. The linked answer shows how you can programmatically update the category in a post function. Using the script runner plugin one could also write a groovy validator that checks if the projects category has a specific value, i.e. thevproject is in a specific status.
