JIRA Automation: Create new version when a new Sprint is created

Emerson August 23, 2022

Hi everyone!

I'm trying to do automation that creates a new version with a sequential name (eg v1, v2, v3, etc...) every time I create a new sprint. One of the mandatory fields is the version name and I don't know exactly how to write it so that JIRA understands this. Help me, please!

Hi @Emerson and welcome to the community!

You may want to take a look at this one:

The trigger is based off of version released, but should flow similarly otherwise.

Hey @Mark Segall and thanks for the welcome!

Man, I'll tell you something. Worked wonderfully well!

Last question: for me to change and look like, for example, SPR_v1, just change the string inside the parentheses?


Thanks a lot! I was cracking my head here and now I'm happy!

Hi @Emerson ,

please could you share with me the solution? I'm looking exactly for this case and cannot find the smart value to place in the automation.


Thanks a bunch!

Hi @Anja Eigner ,

I'm really really sorry. I didn't saw your message.

Ultimately I stopped using scrum boards. On the Kanban board it is simpler.

If you want to do the automation anyway, it looks like this:

When: Version released

Then: Create version
Version name {{".")}}.{{#=}}{{".")}}+1{{/}}

In "More options" I like to put the Start date


P.S.: until now, for this to work, you need to create the first version manually.
