Configuring Workflow Conditions for Jira Cloud

Viewing time 90 seconds   for Jira Misc Workflow Extensions for Jira Cloud 
 
Here, we use JMWE’s Workflow Conditions to show how to configure two workflow automation use cases in Jira Cloud quickly:
  • Hide the transition from users until all linked issues have been resolved.
  • Enable the transition only for Medium priority issues (using the Build-your-own (scripted) condition).

For your convenience, the steps from the above video have been outlined below.

Making issue fields required on transition

Viewing time 35 seconds   for Jira Misc Workflow Extensions

To ensure that specific Jira fields have a value during issue transition, use Jira Misc Workflow Extensions' (JMWE) Fields Required workflow validator. Then, if any of your "required" fields are empty, your custom error message will be displayed to prompt the user to input missing values. Also, you can display the missing field's name by simply inserting %field% placeholder. 


Demo: Shared Actions in JMWE for Jira Cloud

Viewing time 6 minutes   for Jira Misc Workflow Extensions for Jira Cloud 
 
In this video, you learn how to create shared JMWE post-functions (or sequences of post-functions) that can be reused in multiple workflow transitions. 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.
