Hi Atlassian community,
I am happy to let you know that we have just released five new automation triggers that will connect and automate your processes across Jira Cloud, Bitbucket, GitHub, Gitlab and more. If you use these tools, these triggers are going to put a smile on your face!
**Update - we have now added 6 further 'build and deploy' automation triggers for Jira automation. Read all about it here. We also have added an extensive list of smart values to use with these DevOps triggers here.
We recently released our new no-code automation engine in Jira.
Every single admin can now automate all of those repetitive tasks that used to soak up your precious time and brain space. No more manual issue transitions. No more laborious editing of fields or human triaging of tickets. Automation takes care of all of that. Better again, it works across your entire suite of tools.
Making the automation engine a native feature in Jira Cloud was, however, just the first step. We want automation to make your work flow across all products.
We have just released five new triggers including: Branch created, Commit created, Pull request created, Pull request declined and Pull request merged. Each trigger integrates with Bitbucket, Github, Gitlab and more. It means you can stay working in context without the need to switch between tools, write scripts, etc.
If you haven’t yet linked your Jira and Bitbucket accounts, you will be prompted to do so the first time you use these triggers. It is all beautifully intuitive.
If you want to explore the triggers further, you can check out our docs here.
There is no limit to the use cases you can solve using this automation engine and these new DevOps triggers. That’s the beauty. It brings unlimited potential without adding any complexity.
Let me give you two examples of how we are using these new triggers in Atlassian.
Of course! But don’t just take my word for it. Early-adopting users have already tweeted feedback. We would love for you to give it a go too. We are constantly trying to improve so if you have questions, please leave a comment below.
If you are not already using automation, it can be a little tricky to find (we’re working on making this better). It is in your Jira Settings under ‘Automation.’ You will need to be a project or site admin to see this navigation and to be able to create and edit automation rules. (In next-gen projects, you can see it under project settings > apps > Project automation)
We have a ton more coming in the automation and DevOps space so I will make sure to post frequently to the community with updates. The community has always been an immense source of knowledge and an amazing support network for those getting started with automation. Thank you for that.
Hopefully these new triggers did bring a smile to your face. If you'd like to learn more, we will be running a webinar with GitLab where you can learn more about these automation triggers (even if you use BitBucket or GitHub)
