Validating a Checklist

Transition between workflow statuses can go through a validation phase to determine if the transition can go on. To learn more about Configuring Workflows and Workflow Validators, please consult the Atlassian Documentation.

Checklist ships with a Workflow Validator that can be used to enforce checklist completion before a workflow transition. The validator is called "Checklist Validator" and can be customized. When adding the validator, don't forget to:

  • Select the checklist for which the validator applies to.
  • Select if all items are to be validated or simply the mandatory ones.
  • Select the issue's resolution(s) for which you want to validate the checklist. If no resolution is selected, the validation will occur for any resolution.

When the validator is active and attached to a workflow transition, the validator will prevent the transition when the checklist conditions are not met.
