Issue Entity Properties

Saving data to entity property can unveil data if you can see the issue but cannot see the checklist

Entity properties will reflect the collective state of all checklists, local and global, on the issue.

Available properties

Issue Checklist sets the issue entity property checklist JSON object with the following fields/properties inside:

  "completedText": "Not Completed", // can also be "Mandatory Completed" or "All Completed"
  "activeItems": 2, // also aliased as "uncheckedItems"
  "allItems": 4,
  "uncheckedMandatoryItems": 1,
  "allMandatoryItems": 2,
  "hasActiveItems": true, // also aliased as "hasUncheckedItems"
  "hasItems": true,
  "allItemsCompleted": false,
  "hasUncheckedMandatoryItems": true,
  "hasMandatoryItems": true,
  "mandatoryItemsCompleted": false,
  "progressText": "Checklist: 2/4",
  "progressPercent": 50,
  "items": Item 1 Item 2 Item 3 Item 4

Example usage

Entity properties are read-only.  Changes made directly to the entity properties will not update the checklist and will be overwritten by changes made in the checklist UI (or in any other valid way such as through the API, Checklist Text field, automation, a post function, etc.).

Entity properties can be used in:

  • Automation
    In Automation rules, issue entity properties can be accessed through the smart values feature, e.g.
