Copy & Paste Workflow Functions - Clipboard
From version 1.32.* you can copy Conditions (one condition or grouped conditions), Validators, Post functions to the clipboard and paste them into any workflow to any place.
This functionality can be compared to copying and pasting from your operating system.
A few extra informations ...
each administrator has his own clipboard, exactly 3 different clipboards, separate for Conditions, Validators, Post functions
you can always see what you have in the clipboard by clicking
copied functions will still be in the clipboard even after restarting aplication
Icons images depend on the JIRA version
Copy functions to the clipboard
Paste below functions from the clipboard
Pasting between different environments / instances
installed plugin ‘Extender for Jira’ - version >= 1.49.*
application served over secured domains (https) or localhost
supported browser: Chrome, Brave, Edge, Opera
require explicit user permission for pasting operation in browser for each Jira
How it’s works:
With every copy, the plugin saves functions into system clipboard and application clipboard. Every time when you try paste functions, the plugin first checks the system clipboard, if it does not find the correct string in it, then check the application clipboard. The same behavior regarding checking the clipboards also applies to the clipboard preview.
Since version 1.62.* You can store functions in your private library accessible from any workflow. You can have up to 50 different functions in the library (separate for Conditions, Validators, Post functions), which will certainly make your work easier and faster. Now you will never have to search multiple workflows for the appropriate function ... just add it to the library and quickly add it to the workflow
Add functions to the library
