Automation rule trigger on Upvote

I'd like to create an automation rule such that tickets sit in "Ideas" until somebody upvotes them. At this point, I want them to automatically move column / status into "Upvoted". Is this possible?

Hi @Ian Bamforth 

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".
