Transition screens are handy for capturing information as part of a transition. We recommend the following:

TransitionScreenFields to addAdditional notes
Closed

Screen to capture the issue Resolution:

  • Won
  • Lost
  • Declined
Resolution

To restrict which resolutions are available, add a comma-separated list of resolution IDs to the Closed transition. E.g.

Code Block
jira.field.resolution.include = 10100,10500,10501,10400


We've also added a new transition screen to capture the last follow-up date as part of the Follow-up transition.

Resolutions

We have just used the Depending on your reporting requirements, you could use different 'Done' statuses.

We capture resolution . However, you could just as easily use resolution to distinguish Lost and Won, depending on your reporting requirements(i.e. the reason why it's closed) as part of the Close transition - Won, Lost, or Declined.

Issue Types

We advise that you setup a custom issue type to suit this workflow - e.g. 'Sales Lead'.

  • Client
  • Services
