Avoid a duplicate ticket with Datadog and Jira integration

In my environment I have an integration of Datadog and JSM, that is, when there is an alert, a ticket is created automatically.
I would like to know if there is a way to create an automation that, if there is already an open ticket, do not open another one.

I'm not sure how the current integration is set up, but it can be a bit tricky to prevent tickets from being created unless it is automation that is creating them.  However, you should be able to set up an automation that will close an issue as a duplicate.

  • Listen to issue created events,
  • Filtering the automation down to just those that come from datadog (e.g. via issue type or labels).  
  • Check if there are any other issues that have the same description/summary/custom fields (or however you plan to identify the duplicates)
  • If yes, close the ticket.

It might look something like this:

Isso não seria o ideal para mim, mas ajudaria se você adicionasse na automação, depois de Concluído, incluir um comentário de que o ticket criado anteriormente (se estiver no status Aberto) já está sendo tratado. Seria algo assim:

This ticket is already being handled in ticket {{issue.key}}
