Number of votes required for the group step to pass (applied only in case of Approval or Consent action) The number of accepted votes that are required for the current group step to mark the step as completed successfully and move the approval process to the next step (if there is the next step) or complete the whole approval process successfully.
Number of votes required for the group step to fail (applied only in case of Approval or Consent action) The number of rejected votes that are required to mark the current group step as failed. For example, if there are 2 votes required for the group step to fail, then the first ‘Reject’ action won't stop progress. Step still can be completed successfully until the second ‘Reject’ action is cast.
Approval / Consent action
One or more members of the selected Jira group can vote to approve or reject. When the step is activated, then all group members will receive a notification with a ‘call for action’. On page view, the user will see accept and reject button. The decision cannot be changed. The only way to undo the decision is to ‘reset’ the ongoing approval path and start a new one. Every Jira page participant can start or reset the approval process.
All group members will be notified about current progress. They might be interested in knowing progress or result, but those people have no involvement in decision making. Possible use cases:
Used at the beginning of the approval process to notify team members about the new project proposal.
Used as the last step in the approval process to notify the Jira administrators about needed changes in the Jira structure.
As the creator of the definition, you can exclude yourself from the approvers, this way other members of the team will have to participate in order for the path to complete.
