Custom Workflow Repository

JetBrains has created a dedicated repository for custom workflows. This repository contains ready-to-use workflows that support a range of use cases. You can access the repository in GitHub. The repository contains workflows that are written in JavaScript. These workflows are compatible with the current version of YouTrack and can be edited directly in the built-in workflow editor.

Using a Workflow from the Repository

The YouTrack workflow repository contains a number of custom workflows that have been written by JetBrains developers and YouTrack users. While you're always welcome to write your own workflows, you might find exactly what you're looking for in the repository.

If you find a workflow in JavaScript that you want to use as-is, you can download the file from the repository and import it into YouTrack.

To use a workflow from the repository:

  1. Download the workflow ZIP archive from the repository. For workflows in JavaScript, the ZIP archives are located in the youtrack-workflows/js/zips directory.

  2. Import the workflow to your YouTrack server and attach it to a project. For instructions, see

For workflows in JavaScript, you can also import these files into your development environment and modify the custom workflow to fit your business logic. To learn more about managing workflows in an IDE, see Using an External Code Editor.
