Troubleshooting this post-function configuration: In case the post-function does not work as expected these are the things to look out for
JMWE shows an error message on the issue view if any error occurs during the execution of the post-function. This message is displayed only if the current user is a Jira administrator.
When you add this post-function to a transition and trigger the transition, a message is displayed to the user triggering the transaction, as a “flag” in the top right corner of the issue view page. You can also use Nunjucks annotations to insert issue, transition, and current user information into the Message body and Action type, using the 'issue', 'transition' and 'currentUser' variables, respectively. You can customize the post-function using the following options:
Message type: Select the type of message box ("flag") to display. It can be one of "Info", "Success", "Warning" and "Error".
Auto close: Select this option if you want the message box to disappear automatically after a few seconds.
You can add an action link to the message which, when clicked, can navigate to another issue or to an arbitrary URL. To add an action link, select the "Add action link" checkbox:
Action title: Input the title of the action link that will be displayed at the bottom of the message.
Action type: Select the type of action to be performed.
Navigate to URL: Input a text that represents a valid URL or a Nunjucks template that returns a valid URL. For example:
Navigate to another issue: Input a valid issue key or a Nunjucks template that returns an issue key. For example:
A typical use case for this post-function is to display a message on the issue view after a transition. Consider a use case where you want to display a notification message on the issue view if a new issue has been created by the Create Issue(s) post-function with a link to the newly created issue. To configure this:
Add the Display Message to User post-function to a transition.
Input the "Message title" as New issue created
Input the "Message body" as:
A new ticket has been created.
Select the "Message type" as Warning
Select the "Action link" option
Input the "Action title" as Go to the created issue
