Use cases for post functions

This section has use cases which help you in understand the usage of Post-functions provided by JMWE.

On this page:

Assign to role member

This post function can be used to assign an issue to the member of a selected project role

Sample use cases:

 On the creation of a Bug assign it to a user only if he is a Product Owner

  • Add the Assign to role member to the Create transition.

  • Select Product Owner as the Project Role

  • Select Use selected assignee, only if a member of the required role option

 Assign an issue to a member of the QA team when the issue is transitioned to Ready for testing status

  • Create a QA project role, with the testers as its members.

  • Add the Assign to role member post-function to the transition that leads to Ready for testing status.

Assign to last role member

This post function can be used assign an issue to the last role member of a selected project role. This is very much similar to the Assign to role member, except that it always looks for the last role member.

Sample use cases:

 When a tester reopens an issue assign the issue to a Developer who last worked on it.

  • Create a Developer project role, with the developers as its members.

  • Add the Assign to last role member to the Reopen transition.

  • Select Developer as the Project Role

 After testers have validated an issue, it should be assigned to the last product owner who worked on it for the functional validation. The product owner might either have been explicitly assigned to the issue before, to write the functional specification or have written the specification while creating the issue.

  • Create a Product Owner project role, with the product owners as its members.

  • Add the Assign to last role member post-function to the Validate transition of the workflow.

  • Select Product Owner as the project role to look for.

  • Select Include Reporter option in case a product owner created the issue but was never assigned to it afterward.
