Getting Started with JMWE for Jira Cloud

Transaction History Tab

Ensure that an epic cannot be closed until all its stories are closed


Jira Misc Workflow Extensions (JMWE) includes the Transitions history tab in the Activity section on the Issue View screen. It lets users easily see all issue status transitions, when and by whom they were triggered, all in one list. They can also see Time in status for each transition to easily evaluate status changes of an issue.

Users can view the following for each transition:

  • Transition statuses. It lists To and From statuses of transitions in chronological order. (Note, since auto-transitions don't change the issue status, JMWE does not show them).
  • When the transition was triggered (with timestamp). You can hover over the date to see the full timestamp value, which is especially useful for relative date/time values.
  • Author of the transition.
  • Time in Status. How long the issue spent in the original "from" status (left of the arrow) before being transitioned.

Users can find this information by navigating to the issue details screen in the section called "Transitions".

How to disable it

The JMWE Transitions tab is enabled by default, but you can also turn it off to remove it from user views. If you choose to hide the JMWE's Transition tab, uncheck the option on the configuration page of the JMWE app.
