I'm trying to get popup notifications working with Automation for Jira.
The code is as follows:
This code does work if placed in a Validator script, but not when placed in an Automation for Jira script. Is there anyway around this issue? Or is it just not possible?
I'd lean on the side that this doesn't work.
Validators work while a transition in the workflow is being performed - in real time, while a user is looking at a screen.
Automation (in terms of Automation for Jira) happens asynchronously. While this typically happens within seconds and appears instant, it actually listens for events, and then performs actions. Automation for Jira can do things in the background, which makes the ability to display a notification kind of pointless.
Is there any reason you want to pursue use Automation for Jira in particular?
I can confirm that there is no way to display a popup dialogue with ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud which you have indicated you are using, as Atlassian does not provide any Rest API's for displaying popup dialogues and ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud can only use the Rest API's which Atlassian provides.
However, you could work around this by having your script call the Add Comment API to add a comment when the pop up should be displayed or you could have your script call the Send Notification API to send an email notification when the popup should be displayed.
I hope this information helps.
