Shared Actions: reusing post-function configurations [new in Jira Cloud]


Create shared JMWE post-functions (or sequences of post-functions) that can be reused in multiple workflow transitions. 

​In Jira Cloud, JMWE post-functions (or sequences of post-functions) can now be configured once and then added to multiple transitions across different workflows. It lets you quickly reuse (and then maintain) common configurations. 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.

Verify approval in a Jira workflow


It's smart to make Jira workflows as simple and flexible as possible. I like to give users multiple ways to transition issues between statuses and even let them skip statuses when needed. But sometimes skipping a status is undesirable or creates a compliance problem. Consider an approval status for example. You'd certainly fail an audit if work was started on an issue or an issue was completed before it was approved. Luckily, Innovalog's Jira Misc Workflow Extensions (JMWE) app has a validator to prevent it.

Use Case: Before work is started or an issue reaches its final workflow status, make sure it passes through the "Approval" status.

Bonus: Conditional Approval, to allow selected issues to bypass the "Approval" status.
