I'm writing a global automation that sends email when an issue is deployed.
Issue Trigger: Deployment Successful
Action: Send email
What I'm struggling with is the email distribution. We reserve the first issue in each project for the project charter. So XXX-1 is always the charter. The charter has custom fields for Business Analyst, Project Manager, etc. I want to send emails to the BA, PM and QA folks when the deployment is successful but smart values only act on the active issue, which would be like XXX-52.
So I want to pull the user from a custom field in another issue, in the same project as the active issue. Is that possible?
Hi @Ryan Schamp
Probably "yes", and...
As you are using a global scope, automation rule it can branch to any issue. You just need to identify that charter issue you mention and the data could then be used in your communications.
I am not using the Deployment Successful trigger at this time, and so cannot test this. I recommend testing to learn which of the returned information could help: https://support.atlassian.com/cloud-automation/docs/jira-smart-values-development/
And I seem to recall this one triggers for each issue, and so that may be your answer if the charter issue is part of the set: add a condition to detect the charter before emailing.
