Transition Issues Post-Function

What is it?

The problem you need to solve: Be able to perform transition of any Linked Issues.

How Minyaa solves this problem: A Workflow Post-Function able to try the transition of Issues idenitified by Issue Links.

How it works

The Post-Function follows the defined Issue Links hierarchy, in order to find Issues for which, the Auto-Transition Manager will try to perform a transition for Candidate Transitions.

Configuring the Feature

To configure the Transition Issues Workflow Post-Function, follow these steps :

  1. Add the Transition Issues Post-function to any wanted transition, that will be Initiator of the Transition on Linked Issues.

    For more information on adding a Post Function in Workflow, please see JIRA: Adding a Post Function Adding a Transition Issues Post-Function

  2. Its configuration allows you to specify ...

    • Outward and/or Inward Issue Link Types to follow in the hierarchy in order to identify Issue concerned for a Auto-Transition
    • if the Link Hierarcht has to be recursive.

  3. When added, the Post-Function should be among the latest defined Post-Functions (its weight is set to 9999).
