During new software releases you get to the point where all related issues within Jira have to be released. You could do this using a project event trigger as described in this use case. If you want to have a more fine-grained control you might want to kick-off this process manually. At this point our Manual Trigger comes in handy!
The following rule will build on the project event use case but instead use the manual trigger.
Create a new rule and name it appropriately.
Providing a description will help you to identify what the rule does but this step is optional.
Add a Trigger → Manual
No further configuration needed. The rule will only be executed if a user hits the Execute button.
Add Selector → JQL Selector
Use the following Expression:
Transition issue action
Next to the JQL Selector click on Add → Action → Transition issue
Choose Transition to status
The target status has to be reachable from the current status, otherwise, the action will not be executed.
This is how the configuration above should look on your screen
