Delete Related Issues

Introduction

This post function allows you to delete related issues with or without enforcing the "Delete issue" permission check. For example, this post function can be used in the following scenarios:

  • Delete duplicated issues when they're not required anymore
  • Delete completed technical tasks when an issue is presented to a customer

Post function parameters

 This post function takes the following parameters:

  • Issue relation and JQL - described at the bottom of the page.
  • Permission - allows to enforce the "Delete issue" permission check. If not ticked, every user can delete issues (use it wisely!).
  • Issue Delete Limit - the maximum number of issues to be deleted. If JQL returns more than this value, only first issues will be deleted until the limit is reached.

Working with related issues

Related issues can be selected by using two inputs:

Issue Relation - where you can choose a relation with the current (transitioned) issue;

JQL - you can put your JQL text to filter some issues from the results. If you leave the JQL Field empty, all issues in a given relation are taken into account.

In the example above you wanted to execute a workflow function on subtasks of the current issue and take additionally only the ones with the "Sub-task" and priority="High" type.

Tags

In the JQL field you can put some text tags to be replaced with actual values of the current (transitioned) issue:

$$CURRENT_DATETIME$$

The current date and time.
 $$CURRENT_USER$$The name (login) of the current user.
$$ISSUEKEY$$The key of the current issue.
 $$ISSUEID$$ID of the current issue.
 $$REPORTER$$The current issue reporter's name.

$$ASSIGNEE$$

The current issue assignee's name
$$PROJECTKEY$$The project key.
$$CURRENT_STATUS$$The current issue status.
$$ISSUETYPE$$The issue type.
$$CREATED_DATE$$The date when the issue was created.

$$CURRENT_STATUS_CATEGORY$$

A status category of the current issue (To Do, In Progress or Done).
$$TRANSITION_NAME$$The name of an actual transition (doesn't work in Conditions)
$$TRANSITION_ID$$ID of an actual transition (doesn't work in Conditions).
$$TRANSITION_COMMENT$$The content of a transition comment (doesn't work in Conditions).

The JQL field has a built-in validation feature. If your query is incorrect, you will see a red sign next to the JQL field and an error description as shown below:
