🚀 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This example is considered outdated.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: Moving Story to "In Progress" when one of its sub-tasks is moved to "In Progress"

A sub-task for a story is moved from "To Do" to "In Progress". The workflow then automatically moves the story from "To Do" to "In Progress".

Insert Copy a parsed text to a field post-function into transition from "To Do" to "In Progress" in sub-task's workflow with the following configuration:

Note that:

  • %{00042} is field code for Parent's issue status
  • If you have a condition or a validator in parent's workflow's transition from "To Do" to "In Progress" that blocks the transition depending on the status of sub- task's you might need to use "Parent's issue status (delayed writing)" at parameter Target status in order to try the execution of the transition once the sub-task has completed its current transition.
