Automation rule trigger on Upvote

Yes it can be done, but it's not the cleanest rule. I couldn't get "Votes" as a trigger. But if you run a rule with a 5min schedule, include JQL to give you all the issues in "Ideas" status and then run an advanced compare {{issue.votes}} is greater than 0 you'll be able to transition these to "Upvoted".
