Action Properties

After you define the states in a workflow, you must define the actions that are associated with each state. For example, for the Dev-Ready state in the default bug workflow, a developer can take the Fixed action, the Cannot Fix action, and so on.

Each action has a set of properties associated with it.

General properties

The properties of an action are varied and cover the following areas:

  • Button label that appears on the Issue Details page.
  • Description of the action that appears on the History tab.
  • New state that results from this action.
  • Reason code.
  • Appearance and usage of the action dialog.
  • Groups permitted to take this action.
  • Sort order of this action.

Action of State dialog box

Action properties are set on the Edit Action of State dialog box. (Issues > Configuration > Workflows).
