This plug-in provides a great functionality for those who is familiar with the Ruby language.
It allows to customize workflow by defining own rules of issues processing. It's possible:

  • To change issue properties if some conditions are met;
  • To create new issues programmatically if the conditions are met (for example you can create an issue in another project if the status of source issue is changed to specific value);
  • To raise custom errors which will display to user, if he does something wrong;
  • To do anything that conforms to your needs;

Supported observable objects are:

  • Issue (before_save, after_save, before_destroy, after_destroy)
  • Group (before_save, after_save, before_destroy, after_destroy)
  • User (before_save, after_save, before_destroy, after_destroy)
  • Project (before_save, after_save, before_destroy, after_destroy)
  • Attachment (before_save, after_save, before_destroy, after_destroy)
  • Wiki Content (before_save, after_save, before_destroy, after_destroy)
  • Group Users (before_add, after_add, before_remove, after_remove)
  • Issue Attachments (before_add, after_add, before_remove, after_remove)
  • Project Attachments / Files (before_add, after_add, before_remove, after_remove)
