Transition Issue

Transition a Jira issue to a different status (for example, IN PROGRESS, DONE, or CLOSED,) using a transition name.

To change the status of an issue, you must use the name of the transition and not the name of the end status.


Field Definition Type Required
Issue ID or Key ID or key of the issue that you want to transition to a new status. String TRUE
Transition To

Enter the Jira transition name that matches the end state where you want to move the issue.

These transition names are specific to your Jira project. Depending on your Jira project settings, the transition names and issue statuses may be different.

You can find these names in the Jira interface for your ticket, inside the transition issues dropdown menu.

For example:

Transition name

Issue status

Start Progress IN PROGRESS
Resolve Issue RESOLVED

Close Issue


String TRUE
Comment Comment about the issue. String FALSE


Field Definition Type
Status Code

Result of the operation. The connector returns an HTTP status code that indicates whether the action taken by the card succeeded or failed. For example:

  • A 201 Created status code indicates success where a new resource was created.
  • A 403 Forbidden error indicates that the HTTP request wasn't processed because the necessary permissions were missing.

For a full list of possible status codes, see HTTP status codes.
