Step 5. Transition the issue
Next, transition the issue to “In Review”. Add a new action component and search for and select the Transition issue action.
Configure the Transition issue action so it updates the issue status to “In Review”. Once configured, click Save.
The final rule summary should look like:
When a pull request is created, comment on the attached issue. If the status is “In Progress”, move it to “In Review”. This helps keep Jira issues updated when developers actively work on issues. Enter a name for the automation rule and click Turn it on to activate.
Once activated, trigger this rule by creating a Jira issue and push a commit to GitLab that references that commit. Visit the automation Audit log to review the rule’s behaviour or debug any errors.
This rule is a good foundational rule for other advanced pull request rules. Be sure to check out hundreds of other rules in our Automation Template Library.
