My name is Nick, as the big title above suggests and I am one of the co-founders of Automation for Jira. I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself and hopefully answer any questions you might have.
Myself and the team have spent the last 5 months working hard to bring automation natively to Jira Cloud and now that it’s live, I hope lots of you are already benefitting from automating away the repetitive tasks to make Jira work for you.
When we started building Automation for Jira, the goal was always to make it so anyone could automate Jira in just a few clicks. It shouldn’t be rocket science (though Nasa is a customer!). Over the years, we have continued to build with this in mind and luckily customers have responded. Equally the Atlassian community has always supported each other in building ingenious new automation rules. We have always been super-grateful and I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank-you for maintaining this amazing community.
If you haven’t yet enabled your first automation rule, you are missing out! It is easy to do, it will save you a ton of time and stress and it’s actually kind of fun…at least I think so! My co-founder Andreas is running a webinar in a couple of weeks along with our marketing guy John. It isn’t going to be death by Powerpoint. We will show you how best to build your first automation rules and give you templates to take away. We’d love for you to join us.
In the meantime, any admin should see automation on the left side of your Jira administration menu so you can get started automating today! Looking forward to meeting many of you.
