Usage cases

You want to apply, for a Sub-Task, the same Component as its Parent Issue.

How it works

By defining this Workflow Function in a Transition of your workflow, you are able to force Sub-Task's Component to be updated with Component of Parent Issue. 

Configuring the Feature

To configure the Inherit Component Post-Function, please follow these steps :

  • Since this Workflow Function does not need to be associated with a screen containing the concerned CustomFields, the function can be added in any Workflow Transition.
    It might be:
    • A Common Transition,
    • Or a Global Transition.

Note that if you need to use such Post-Function in a Initial Transition (Create Transition), you have to check that the Post-Function is used :

  • After Create Issue Post-Function
  • and before index Issue Post-Function

If it is not respected you will experience an error message when trying to perform the transition.

  • Add the Inherit Component Post-Function to any wanted transition.

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

  • You will end up with a transition looking like:

And the XML Declaration as follow : 

<post-function >
	<function type="class">
	  <arg name="full.module.key">fr.alkaes.minyaa.jira-plugin-minyaa-workflowsinheritcomponents-function</arg>
	  <arg name="">fr.alkaes.myaawf.workflow.postfunction.InheritComponentsFunction</arg>
