Run Powershell Script from an automation rule


I've just started researching this subject but thought I'd ask here first.

Is it possible to run a powershell script from an automation rule please?  

Looking to add users to AD groups off the back of approvals.

If not, is there a better suited tool?

Many thanks in advance

@Mark Cartwright if you're running on Jira Server or Data Center in a Windows environment, it could be possible.

If you have ScriptRunner from Adaptavist installed, you get a Scripted action in your automation rules. You could use this and a bit of Groovy script to kick off a PowerShell script with relative ease.

@Gareth Cantrell Sorry, had forgot to mention we're running on Jira Server and do have ScriptRunner installed.  Am researching that route so thank you for confirming I'm on the right path.  Would you happen to have any good sources to learn from?  No worries if not.

Thank you.

Although, I'm not sure how fit-for-purpose this would be for your use-case. If you're using Azure for your AD, there is an API you can use by using the Send Web request action in an automation rule.

@Mark Cartwright if you're using AzureAD, I cover a complete example using the Azure API in my book, Automating Everyday Tasks in Jira.

If you go the ScriptRunner route, Adaptavist has a handy library of scripts at which may give you a head start.
