Jira Automation - Send email notification when an epic is complete

Hi, I'm new to Jira Automation and I need your help.

This is what I am looking for:

Phase 1: Once all issues in an epic are fixed, the epic would be marked as done

Phase 2: An email would be sent informing that "The epic of this project was fixed" with a list of issues covered in the epic.

The first phase is done. I am able to send the email having "epic summary" and "project name", but I can't find a way to list issues that are inside the epic. I tried using smart values custom fields but it didn't help.

Screenshot of what I have done this far:


It would be great if someone could help me out.

Thank you

Hi @John T_ 

Have you tried to use LookupIssues yet?  Before you send the email, you could use LookupIssues with JQL to get the children of the Epic, and then send the list in the email, such as using markup for a list with links:

Here is the list of issues in the epic:
<li><a href="{{url}}">{{key}}</a> {{summary}}</li>{{/}}

Best regards,


It Worked! Thank you @Bill Sheboy for the help. 

Is there any way to list "time logged on an issue" as well? I did go through the documentation for "Lookup issues" but didn't found its solution.

Again, thanks for the help!

Hi John,

I am glad that helped.

No additional fields with LookupIssues yet.  There is an item in the Code Barrel backlog to add more fields to that feature:
