When a dev pics up an issue from the backlog he sometimes forgets to drag it to the board.
He just changes the status to something that is different from "todo" (on my board it's "In progress"
I would have expected that those issues would automatically move to the board since this now became an active issue that the dev is working on.
Additionally, they tend to forget to assign it to themselves. Is there a way that whoever changes the status away from "todo" to also be the person that gets the issued assigned?
I'm using a next-gen project and i the same issue. When an issue changes status from TODO to INPROGRESS in backlog i'd like to move it out of backlog.
The only way to do it now is to drag and drop or select MOVE TO, again manually.
Would love to see an automation for this action
I have the same issue - my workflow is configured to automatically transition issues from backlog to in progress whenever the parent epic makes the same transition. Unfortunately this does not move things out of backlog, and it behaves rather unpredictably.
The way I cured it was to display the backlog column on the Kanban board, and not in the backlog section.
However if I keep the backlog status in the backlog section, the post function transition does not fire.
I tried creating a separate "Triage" board with just backlog and in progress. But that still does not work. It seems that as long as there is one board that uses the backlog area, your post functions won't transition things out of backlog.
I would really prefer to keep backlogs in the backlog section, but that would break the workflow. Is that a feature or a bug?
Upvoted the related issues as well.
I'm trying to write automation that will automatically move issues from the backlog onto the board by transitioning their status. Unfortunately not something that is possible now (I don't want to use JIRA roadmaps as this is not relevant to the project board I've built).
Will this be resolved once the next-gen workflow feature is rolled out? Any insights and support here would be appreciated, as this is blocking some key functionality I'm trying to support.
Dear @Rik Vanmechelen ,
the action "move to board" depends on how you mapped the statuses of your issues to the board columns. If the origin status is mapped to a different column than the target status, then the issue will (visually) move.
The second question: Yes you can do. Therefore you have to alter the issues workflow. Within the post functions of a transition you can auto assign issues to the users who triggered the transition.
