JMWE (Jira Misc Workflow Extensions) helps teams automate their workflows and streamline their processes in Jira. Developed by Appfire, JMWE offers a wide range of functionalities not available in Jira's out-of-the-box workflow engine. This getting started guide will teach you all about JMWE's core features. 
JMWE allows creation of custom post-functions, conditions, and validators, generating and manipulating issues, performing calculations, and much more. JMWE also provides a user-friendly interface that allows admins without scripting knowledge to configure their workflows without needing advanced programming skills. Optional sophisticated yet simplified scripting capabilities can help more advanced users create and manage complex workflows that meet their specific needs and requirements.
Most of the videos in this guide, with an introduction by Rachel Wright, a certified Jira Administrator and author of the widely read Jira Strategy Admin Workbook, are succinct and last only a few minutes. You can complete the entire guide in just one lunch hour.


JMWE is a powerful Jira automation app that allows you to rapidly build and configure workflows with an ever-growing suite of post functions, conditions, and validators that go well beyond native Jira functionality. With simplified scripting, event-based automation, and a simple Jira API, even non-coders can easily customize workflows using Jira expressions/Nunjucks or build their own conditions, validators, and post functions. It has 30+ configurable post functions and features such as Build-your-own (scripted) extensions, Shared Actions for reusing configurations, Scheduled Actions, and migration support from Server to Cloud. It is used by over half of Fortune 100 companies, including Microsoft, Walmart, Proctor & Gamble, and Pfizer.
