What may be an Auto-Transition

Basically, in JIRA, is considered as Auto-Transition, any Workfow Transition where its Initiator is not directly raised by the user through the UI.


How JIRA Community does implement Auto-Transitions

In JIRA Community, there are different ways to implement an Auto-Transition, where different definitions of Auto-Transition coexist.

You will see Auto Transition done

Identifying the Type of Auto-Transitions to use

To implement Auto-Transitions, you have to identify

  • Which transitions have to be executed ?

    • Any available Auto-Transition identified in linked Issue (sub-Task or any Linked Issues) of the current Issue
    • Any available Auto-Transition identified in any Issue
    • A Transition identified by its Id. in linked Issue (sub-Task or any Linked Issues)


  • When they have to be executed ? An Auto-Transition can be raised by different events :

    • Internal Transition : the transition is launched automatically after another transition of the same issue
    • External Transition : the transition is launched automatically after a transition of the another issue
    • Change Event : the transition is launched automatically depending on an any event related to change in the context of the issue (any Field value, Actor, Project, Version, ...)
    • Temporal Event : the transition is launched automatically depending on an temporal event
Depending on these criteria, we are able to implement different types of Auto-Transition.


And then, you will be able to decide How to implement your Auto-Transition.

Auto-Close of linked IssueOn Issue Close, we want see linked Issue, also closed.Remote-Transition initiated from a Auto-Transition Post-Function
