Is there a way to add a description and start date when creating a new version through automation?


We are on the cloud instance of Jira.

I managed to, on the trigger of manually releasing the current version to create a new one with the same name, incremented by 1.

For example on releasing 'ABC_01', a new version named 'ABC_02' is automatically created. 

However, I would like to be able to set the 'Start Date' to now and add a 'Description' which could be the version name for the new version created through the automation. 

Is that possible as stands?

Any help / guidance greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Craig

Hi @Craig Rogers 

Short answers: no, and yes...

No, not out of the box: There are several open suggestions to support add/edit of the other fields for versions from automation:

Yes, how about a work-around: What you can do is either create or update the version using the REST API, called from an automation rule web request. Here are some references to help with that approach:

Best regards,

Thanks for the response and information @Bill Sheboy , will look to check out the API / web request route.
