JMWE for Jira Cloud Demo
It can help you automate more of your workflows.

Jira Misc Workflow Extensions (JMWE) for Jira Cloud offers dozens of point-and-click workflow conditions, validators, and post-functions. You can easily configure them without any knowledge of scripting. 

But unlike other apps, JMWE also gives you additional configuration power through simplified scripting - this will come in handy when automating more sophisticated workflows. With our top-notch support and documentation, this flexibility earns JMWE the #1 top-selling workflow app spot for Jira Cloud.

In this 32-minute demo, Innovalog's founder David Fischer shows how JMWE can help you build better workflows. You can also navigate to any section - we list them below.

New features in Jira Misc Custom Fields (JMCF) now available

JMCF v 2.3.0 is here

JMCF v. 2.3.0 for Jira Server and Data Center is here, and it brings the following new features: 

Auto-indexing of related Jira issues makes searching accurate

​When displaying an issue, the value of all its Calculated (Scripted) fields is re-computed on-the-fly. Therefore, the value of any Calculated field will always be up-to-date. But when searching for issues, Jira uses the Jira index, which stores the value of all standard and custom fields and is only updated when an issue is modified (or the index is re-built).

How to create Confluence pages from Jira issues - with links and data - in one click

jira-issue-confluence-how-to

Jira Misc Workflow Extensions (JMWE) comes with over 40 point-and-click Jira workflow post-functions, conditions, and validators (here is the PDF cheatsheet of all extensions). Configuring these no-code extensions will often be enough to automate most of your workflows, especially the essential ones. 

However, what sets JMWE apart from all the "code-free" Jira workflow apps is the extensibility of all these extensions with simplified scripting. Even if you are a Groovy novice, you can use code snippets right inside all extensions for more sophisticated workflows. Our user-friendly editor and tester will assist with scripting - often, you'll be able to click your way through "coding".

Additionally, advanced Groovy users can do super-powerful workflow automation with JMWE. Take a look at this use case that Carl E. Allen just shared on the Atlassian Community site

This use case is for Jira Data Center and Jira Server. JMWE is also available in Jira Cloud, but it uses (optional) Nunjucks and Jira expressions to extend your workflows.

Sequence of Post-functions: ensuring a predictable post-function execution order [new in Jira Cloud]

sequence-of-post-functions-jmwe

In Jira Cloud, during a transition, all post-functions run in parallel. Often, however, you need actions to be executed in sequential order. This new post-function, Sequence of Post-functions, allows you to combine several JMWE post-functions into one sequence so that they can all run in a predefined order. For example, if you need, during a transition, to first create a new issue and then send a notification email mentioning the new issue, you need to make sure that the first post-function has finished running before starting the second one. The sequence would ensure that it runs properly.

Scheduled Actions: automating post-functions outside of workflows [new in Jira Cloud]

scheduled-actions-for-jira-cloud

Schedule actions for one or more JMWE post-functions to run against issues returned by a JQL search.  


Regular workflow post-functions run on transitions, but now you can schedule JMWE post-functions to run against issues returned by a JQL search. For example, you can automatically transition any issue escalated yet not addressed for over 24 hours.

Shared Actions: reusing post-function configurations [new in Jira Cloud]

shared-actions

Create shared JMWE post-functions (or sequences of post-functions) that can be reused in multiple workflow transitions. 


​In Jira Cloud, JMWE post-functions (or sequences of post-functions) can now be configured once and then added to multiple transitions across different workflows. It lets you quickly reuse (and then maintain) common configurations. For example, set multiple fields using set field value post-functions and then add them to transitions as one Shared Action, without the need to recreate them again and again. Or configure a post-function to send an email, and then reuse it in different workflows.

Improve handling of SPAM for Jira Service Desk (JSD) Agents

Improve handling of SPAM in Jira

If you set up a Jira Service Desk email address, when a customer submits a support request by email, it is captured and becomes a new ticket (issue). These are added to your queues so that your team can focus on all your customer requests in one place. Sometimes, however, issues might not be relevant and you and you might consider it SPAM.

How to view Issue Transitions in Jira Cloud

See Issue Transitions in Jira Cloud

In the past, the issue view in Jira Cloud has displayed a transition tab, the feature some have come to rely on for activity information essential to their business processes. For example, managers and auditors could have a clear understanding of what actions have been taken on issues, that the right people work on or approve them, and that the processes always follow the appropriate workflow.

Since then, on the new issue view this tab is no longer available and only older Jira Cloud instances still show this option. However...

The difference between the legacy Transitions tab and JMWE’s (and how to disable one)

Jira Issue Transition History Tab

JMWE's new Transitions tab option gives users a precise view of transitions and if you are using this app, it is enabled by default. However, some older Jira Cloud instances might show a second "old view" Transitions tab. This is a legacy tab originally provided by Jira Suite Utilities (JSU).

To avoid confusing your users with two similar options, you might want to disable one of the tabs. But which one should you keep?

ScriptRunner vs JMWE: Choose the best app for your needs

jmwe-vs-scriptrunner
ScriptRunner for Jira and Jira Misc Workflow Extensions are the two top-selling apps in Admin tools and Workflow categories for Jira Server and Data Center, with 23K+ and 16K+ installations respectively (as of July 2019). 

Adaptavist's ScriptRunner provides sophisticated scripting options for many admin functions, while JMWE lets you quickly and easily configure and extend workflows - and only workflows. Many Jira Admins actually use both JMWE and ScriptRunner, but they use them for different things. 

Here, we outline the main differences between JMWE and ScriptRunner to help you decide when to use one app versus the other.
