I am trying to automate the transition of issues(i.e. from SELECTED_FOR_DEVELOPMENT to IN_REVIEW) when a merge request is created on gitlab. Currently I have set up the webhook url to the gitlab repo and the event is being sent by gitlab and received by jira.

However I get this error "No issues from the  webhook", which I think is because there is no specific field called issue in the webhook payload. So how can I have the issue value gotten off one of the field of the payload. i.e source_branch. If there is a better approach to this am willing to try as well

HI @Remigius Chidiebere Mgbekwute ,

Perhaps this trigger can help you?


If the above trigger doesn't suit your requirement, you can add the issue key at the end of the webhook, as shown below :
