Hey Community 👋, Simon Chan from Automation Platform here.
I am stoked to be announcing that a new look for the Rule Builder for Automation will start rolling out this week. Becoming generally available later this year, the new Rule Builder has all the same functionality, but gets a fresh new look that makes it easier to use. And it's all thanks to your feedback! So let’s dive in and get you across all the details.
Whether you’re a seasoned Automation pro or just getting started, we’ve made it easier to create and edit your rules. By making the rule flow the star of the show, you can see and understand everything that’s happening in a rule. Just like in the current rule builder, you can add components sequentially via the ‘Add component’ button, or add them in-between existing components by clicking. If you’ve already configured your components, you can drag and drop to reorder the steps in your rule.
Component details has now moved into the right side bar, and it’s now always visible. No matter how many components your rule has, it always will be there by your side, so you don’t have to scroll up and down the entire page to know if you’re editing the right component in a long rule. We’ve also given branching a refresh, with lines to make it clear where a if/else or branch occurs in your rule flow.
We’ve heard that it’s easy to forget to save a rule, and then changes are lost. To make it easier, we’ve placed the Turn on rule and Update (shown when editing an existing rule) buttons on the top right of the rule builder. They’re always there so if you have to run to a meeting mid-edit you can easily hit Update to make sure your work is saved. You’ll also find the Audit Log, Rule Details, and options to toggle rules on or off in the same place.
The new look Rule Builder will start gradually rolling out today across Jira, Confluence, Jira Service Management and Jira Work Management to all editions where Automation is currently available. We expect the rollout to be complete and for the new look Rule Builder to be available in all products by the end of this calendar year.
Before we sign off, thank you for sharing your feedback here in the Community and for getting on calls with us to share your experiences with Automation. We hope you’ll love the new look Rule Builder.
