🚀 JWT 3.0 is out 🚀 

The app was completely overhauled, and so was the documentation: Jira Workflow Toolbox (Server/Data Center) Home

The page you are viewing is still valid for all app versions prior to 3.0.

Features used to implement the example

This example is considered outdated. Please head over to the one using our Transition issues post function here.

Example: Change parent's status depending on sub-task's summary

I have some doubts and I am unable to solve them:
I have a Task and Sub-task: If the summary of a sub-task contain "Create estimate", then the task gets the new status "estimate created" (execute transition in Task).

You have to insert Set field as a function of other fields post-function in "Create Issue" post-function of sub-task's workflow. Use the following configuration:

Setting rule used requires JIRA Workflow Toolbox 2.1.32 or higher. Prefix i makes the regular expression to be evaluated ignoring the case of the text in the summary. Used expression is:

i(.*create estimate.*)In Progress

If you are using an older version of the plugin, use the following equivalent setting rule:

((?i).*create estimate.*)In Progress

Once configured, "Create Issue" transition in sub-task's workflow will look like this:

Please check that:

  • There is a transition from current parent status to the new status, and that all the conditions and validations in that transition are satisfied.
  • In order to discard that the setting rule is not being triggered because of the condition on "Summary" is not satisfied, please, replace the setting rule with (.*)Estimated created which is always satisfied.
