Workflow Rules

What is Workflow Rules

Workflow Rules is a Jira server app that helps you extend workflow condition/validator and post function.

The app uses natural language like rules to express business logic in an intuitive way so that anyone (with or without coding experience) is able to understand and manage the business logic.

  • Support of DSL extension (under consideration)

The feature list may be adjusted in future.
