The ability to support custom workflows for teams is a key strength of Atlassian's Jira. In this course, you'll build workflows from scratch and customize workflow transitions using transition screens, conditions, validators, and post functions.
Software development teams have different workflow needs, and being able to adapt to those needs has long been a strength of Atlassian's Jira.
Such customization can be complex, though. In this course, Jira Workflow Creation and Customization, will help you by examining the core customization concepts and working through examples of key types of workflow and transition customizations. First, you'll discover core workflow concepts and transition concepts. Then, you'll learn the two workflow editors, and transition conditions, validators, and post-functions. Finally, you'll examine the market for third-party workflow extensions. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills you need to create and customize your own Jira workflows to support your teams.
Course Overview Hi there, I'm Jim Weaver and I'm a software developer who's worked with many development teams over the years, following different development processes. I've also enjoyed selecting and supporting many of the development tools teams rely on. Atlassian's Jira is frequently used by software development teams as their planning and tracking tool, and one of its strengths is the ability to support different team workloads. This course, Jira Workflow Creation and Customization, is part of the Planning, Tracking, and Releasing Software with Jira skill path here at Pluralsight. And it will help you learn how to adapt Jira to the workflows you'd like for your own team. We'll be creating and customizing workflows for the Carved Rock Fitness software development team that we've followed through this series of courses. We'll create two custom workflows for the team using both the workflow text editor and the graphical workflow designer. We'll custom those workflows to fit team needs by adding post functions, validators, screens, and conditions to their workflow transitions. We'll add a trigger to automatically transition issues when code changes are committed and will even install and try out a third-party extension to add even more transition customization capabilities than come with Jira out of the box. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to build and customize your own workflows for Jira.
