New Automation Trigger for Compass in Jira and Confluence Cloud

Hello Community :wave: Scott from Automation Platform here. Today, I am excited to announce a new Automation trigger for Compass now available in both Jira and Confluence Cloud Automation. This also marks our first cross-product trigger, which means you can now initiate a rule from a different product than the one where it is being run.

New Trigger: Component created in Compass

The trigger will run your rule whenever a component is created in Compass.

In the rule builder, select the “Component created in Compass” trigger:


To use this trigger, you’ll need to have access to a Compass site because you'll need to create a connection:

Once the connection has been created, continue building your rule as normal:

Supercharge your rules with Smart Values

The following Smart Values can be used in actions and conditions to reference the component that triggers your rule:

  • {{}} - Prints the name of the Compass component.

  • {{}} - Prints the ID of the Compass component.

  • {{component.url}} - Prints the URL of the Compass component.

  • {{component.cloudId}} - Prints the Cloud ID of the component

  • {{component.type}} - Prints the component type.

We’ll be adding more smart values over time, so if there are other Compass data you’d like to use in your Automation rules, leave us a comment below.

Get started with a template

We're introducing two new templates to help you get started with Automation for Compass. A new template will be available in both Jira and Confluence.

In Jira, the new template will generate a new issue upon the creation of a component in Compass. This can be used to begin handling component onboarding tasks.

Meanwhile, over on Confluence, the template will publish a new page with the component name as its title. Use this to start creating a runbook for your new component.

When will it be available?

The trigger is available right now in Jira and Confluence Cloud!

For the smart value(s), it would be great it the repository link could be added to the action.


In the spirit of asking for more, it also would be good to have a "Component updated" trigger, and a "Edit Compass" action that would allow Automation to update some of the standard fields, with the "additional values" capability to use json for user defined fields.

Hey @Ken Young keep an eye out over the next couple of months for new Compass Automation components. We will be working with the Compass team to bring these to you.
