Role Extensions, when configured, allows you to make automatic workflow transitions. For each workflow, you can configure:

  1. Postfunctions

    These automatically assign tasks inside a component (standard JIRA issues) based on component roles. For instance, you may define that the leader of a component is the auto-assignee of tasks inside it.

  2. Conditions

    These concern workflow steps (transitions). You can set that a given workflow step can only be performed by user with a certain role for this component, for instance that only the reviewer can close an issue.
