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


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.

Why you need Shared Actions:

  • Since Jira doesn't support copy-and-paste of post-functions, Shared Actions can help you reuse common configurations quicker and easier.
  • One Shared Action can include multiple post-functions to run in sequence - you can create a more sophisticated process once, and then reuse it in your workflow transitions.
  • Using Shared Actions makes frequently used post-functions easy to maintain - changes to the Shared Action will instantly apply to all transitions where it is being used. 

How it works:

In the Shared Actions page (see above), combine one or more JMWE post-functions into an action. Then, use the Shared Action post-function to add it to various transitions, even in different workflows.
