JSU + JQL = Perfect Formula – Test Addon

JSU + JQL = Perfect Formula – Test Addon

In this post we’re going to test the latest features that have been released by JSU

 

In particular, the introduction of JQL in some features.

Installation

Let’s start with the installation as usual. In this case, we also get help with a GIF, which shows us how to perform the installation.

I’ll make a small note: The first installation I ran went wrong because of a disk space problem on my test server. I’m sorry about that. As a result, I was forced to resume it as the addon installation was still running but did not allow me to resume it. In the GIF you can find another installation method, where I took the link from the marketplace and then uploaded it.

I promise to analyze this point in a dedicated post and check how to manage this situation.

At the end of the installation, you may be asked to perform a Reindex operation, as shown in the following GIF:

Configuration

Let’s continue with the general configuration. It was a great surprise when we realized that we have only one general configuration.

This configuration includes the ability to hook into the Google Maps API. By inserting the appropriate parameters we can hook up.

But let’s get to the point: analyze what options this addon adds us and proceed beyond the configuration via Workflow.

Let’s take a test workflow, in our Jira environment, and examine the post functions. This is the result:

JSU + JQL = Perfect Formula – Test Addon

JSU has always provided a series of Post functions, but now it has extended these features with the introduction of JQL.

Test

Let’s proceed with the test. We selected a project in our test environment and modified a Workflow post-function using JQL.

In detail, we want that when we close an issue, if there are EPIC issues and the status is DONE, then the Assignee field is ‘assigned’ with the value ‘Luigi Bianchi’.

In this example I have inserted some JQL, to show where we can insert the code.

The result is summarized in the following GIF:

Conclusions

We have seen how we can insert the JQL code in our Workflow. This is a very simple and trivial example, but it is always useful to understand where we can insert such conditions. I’d like to point out that, at the moment, the insertion of JQL is not yet assisted, it means we don’t have the same help in writing JQL queries as to when we go to search for issues, but I’m sure that in the next versions Beecom will surprise us with special effects. They are very good and every day they prove it more and more.
