Is it possible to archive a Fix Version through Jira Automation?

Looking at the issue triggers, there are options for creating, releasing, unreleasing, and updating releases (see image below). However, I don't see anything about archiving releases. 

Is there another way to automatically archive a release through Jira Automation?

Hi @Connor Skiro 

At this time, archiving from a rule with an action is not possible.  That is in the backlog:

As an elaborate work-around, you could call the REST API to do this by sending a web request action.  Here is some how-to information if you want to try that:

Thank you for the information, I greatly appreciate it! I see that AUT-702 has been created and de-prioritized for quite some time. Do you know if there are plans to implement this action in the near term?




Hi Connor,

No, I do not have that information.  Unfortunately we cannot watch stuff in the old Code Barrel backlog to see when it moves.  I also checked the public Jira backlog and didn't find any related suggestions for this idea.

Best regards,


Again, thank you for taking the time to look into this! I'll look into the potential workaround with the REST API then.
