created an issue


I'm using toolbox postfunction "write fields in linked issues" Also we have automation that transition issues by event "issue updated"

But there is no event if i update issue with toolbox postfunction

What should i do? I cannot use "execute transition" postfunction by toolbox in "Parrent issue" because it need to be affected on 40+ linked issues at the same time (it will take too much time) and i will get timeout error

    Hi @Стас Peepoy,

    Can you, please, confirm the version of JIRA Workflow Toolbox you are using?

    Have you tried "Execute transition (delayed execution)" instead? That field carries out asynchronous transition executions, and shouldn't produce timeout problem.

    Hi @Стас Peepoy,

    Please, tell me the version of JIRA Workflow Toolbox and JIRA you are executing.

    I don't find anything wrong with your configuration, but I cannot see all the post-functions you are executing. Please, attach a XML export of your workflow and tell me which transition is causing the problem.

    Try moving all your JWT post-functions up in execution order before the default system post-functions. Particularly move your 9th post-function to 5th position in execution order.

    Are you sure that the timeout is caused by 4th post-function? What happens if you disable it? In order to disable it you only have to enter boolean expression false in parameter Conditional execution.

    I use version 2.2.39 with JIRA 6.4.5

    If i export my workflow in xml - plugin postfunctions will not be exported. Here is my postfunctions (sorry for photos its our security rules, no usb no internet) WhatsApp Image 2017-07-21 at 10.52.20.jpeg WhatsApp Image 2017-07-21 at 10.52.21.jpeg WhatsApp Image 2017-07-21 at 10.52.2.jpeg

    Hi @Стас Peepoy,

    You described initially your problem as a "timeout error", but I assumed that the transition on linked issues were executed successfully. Now, you describe the problem as "transition executions not happening".

    Did the changes made in the execution order of post-function made any difference?

    Im sorry i wrote that "asynchronous transition executions not happening" It means that timeout problem does not gone. Maybe it happens because when i trigger "child" transitions they have postfunctions too and i just want too much from one transition (like a cardhouse)? I try disable some of them and tell you about the result

    Hi @Стас Peepoy,

    Please, attach the XML export of the workflows implied:

    1. The workflow of the transition that execute transitions in linked issues.
    2. The workflow of the linked transitions.

    Please, tell me the name of the transitions implied in each workflow.

    Post-functions configurations are included in the XML export.

    If you prefer it, you can send the workflow to
