Automatic Workflow Triggers

Use your development activity to make automatic changes in your Jira project workflows. For example:

  • you can configure your Jira workflow to automatically send a Jira issue to IN REVIEW status when a pull request is pushed and associated with the issue, or

  • you can send a Jira issue to IN PROGRESS when a commit is pushed and associated with a Jira issue.

Available triggers through the Git Integration for Jira and Dev Info for Jira apps:

  • Commit created

  • Branch created

  • Pull request created

  • Pull request merged

  • Pull request declined (closed)

  • Pull request reopened

To configure automatic workflow triggers for your project:

  1. Go to Project settings.

  2. Select Workflow on the sidebar.

  3. Click Edit on the Actions column.

  4. Click Text to display the Diagram in text mode.

  5. Under Transitions column, click a transition item.

  6. Click Add trigger. The Add trigger dialog is displayed.

  7. Click Commit created.

  8. Click Add trigger. This trigger will automatically transition the issue when a related commit is made in a connected repository.

  9. Click Publish Draft. This action will publish the currently edited workflow. Create a backup or set it to No then click Publish.

The automatic workflow trigger is now configured. You can also view this entire process by watching the demo video below.
