Alert for issues that don´t satisfy a jql query

Hi, everyone.

I´d like to schedule an alert for issues that don´t satisfy a jql query.
Like: "No items found by this query".

Is there a way to configure that kind of alert?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Ricardo Augusto Pereira de Matos 

Assuming your rule is fairly simple (does not contain existing IF blocks/branches):

  • TRIGGER: Scheduled as before no JQL
  • ACTION: Lookup Issues
    • Your JQL
  • IF CONDITION: advanced condition {{lookupIssues.size}} = 0
    • ACTION: Send Email
  • BRANCH:  Your JQL
    • Move all other components under the branch

If your rule is more complex, you may need to share screenshots so we can see if there's another way to work it.

Thank you so much, @Mark Segall ! It worked and I´ll add some complexity to it. I just had no idea how to get started.


Best Regards,

Ricardo Matos
