Hi Community

The new Confluence automation feature is great. Is there a way to manually trigger a Confluence rule (like we can in Jira)?

TIA,
KGM

Hi @Kristján Geir Mathiesen 

Unfortunately we do not provide this capability in Confluence today. You simply cannot choose "Manual Trigger" component while defining your rule in Confluence.

Agraj

Hi @Kristján Geir Mathiesen 

just guessing from Triggers in Confluence automation | Cloud automation Cloud | Atlassian Support: There is an URL for every automation (see section "incoming webhook"), you should be able to make the "HTTP POST" request, e.g. from a script or from browser using some javascript.

Regards,

Harald

Thanks for this idea, @Harald Seyr I´ll look into this.

The ask is for a regular user to be able to trigger it, like with a button or gadget on a Confluence page.

I've not tried this myself but in theory, it should be possible using an incoming webhook and then you can create a Forge App (for the gadget/button functionality in Confluence) that triggers this webhook ?
