Workflow Visualization Plugin

This is a commercial plugin without licensing, for the benefit of charity. If you use it after the one month evaluation period the cost is USD 400, which you should donate to COSMIC

A shortcoming of JIRA is its inability to produce a diagram of the workflows. Looking at the text representation of a workflow is not enlightening. This plugin displays an SVG (or PNG) diagram of the workflow. Given a project and optionally a date to search since, it will also display the number of transitions in the specified period for the issues returned by the query.

Also note, that by necessity this is not a simple "copy one jar file and you're done" installation. It is not particularly hard but you need to read the installation instructions. They are available by clicking on the Documentation link to the right.

Sorry to see that it will not be developed anymore. We tried this in Jira 5.1.8 and have some problems when using this in issues that for some reason prevents some of the information to be viewed when looking in Tab "ALL" . Our users really love this plugin that visualizes the workflow directly on the actual issue abnd they can see the possible steps they can take in the issue.

Excellent plugin making up a foundamental gap in JIRA: ability to have a graphical representation of your workflows. Essential for anyone who needs to communicate (everyone?) around its JIRA configuration. Moreover, Jamie is really helpfull, he backed me up during several issues ; even release a bug fix juste for me ;) Thank you for this one!
