Hello, Community 👋 Scott from Automation Platform here.
We are excited to announce today some improvements to Automation in the form of being able to apply filters to Manual Trigger rules.
With this feature, administrators now have the ability to manage the visibility of manual rules for different types of issue fields. For instance, if a manual rule is specific to the epic issue type, a filter can be set up and applied to the rules, ensuring they are not displayed for other issue types like stories or tasks.
In the board view, when multiple issues are selected, the list of manual rules loaded on the lightning menu will be filtered on all selected issues.
We’ve started off small with what filters are available while we assess performance impacts; admins can create display filters based on the following:
This release will enable admins to apply a single filter to a manual rule. We will examine usage and performance to assess additional potential filter types in the future.
Admins have the ability to create a filter based on the status of an issue. All statuses that are available in a project can be used for filtering. Admins can select one or multiple statuses to create a filter.
Admins have the ability to create a filter based on the issue types. Any issue type within a project can be utilised for filtering. Admins can choose one or multiple issue types to create a filter.
Admins have the ability to create a filter based on an assignee. All members of a project are available to be filtered on. Admins can choose one or more assignees to create a filter.
Automation users are unable to view or create filters on their own. However, they will have a reduced number of rules displayed in the lightning and actions menu, which is determined by the configured and applied filters.
The benefits of applying filters can reduce the risk of running manual rules against the incorrect issue type, eliminating the possibility of a user accidentally running a manual rule that they shouldn't, and reducing the overall number of rules in the list, as well as minimizing clutter by displaying only the relevant rules for a given situation.
The new filters are now available in Jira Software, Jira Work Management, and Jira Service Management wherever issues are accessible.
We appreciate feedback from the community regarding how these filters work for you and any suggestions for future iterations. If you have any questions or would like to share your thoughts, please leave a comment below, schedule a call with us, or provide feedback directly from within Automation.
