Send web request, handle response code not equal to 200

johanzetterlund January 18, 2021


I am trying to write an Jira Project Automation that sends a webrequest. 

If I get a response code that is NOT 200 I would like to send another webrequest to another url.

I am trying to use:

If: matches

{{webhookResponse.status}} does not equal 200script.png

But the problem is that Jira Automation stops the execution if the webhook response isn't 200 so it is not event trying to send to my second webserver.

This is the Audit log:


Action details:

Send web request

Error response HTTP body:Error publishing webhook. Response HTTP status:400



Is it possible to read the response.status and send a new webrequest if it's not 200?

I'm thinking it's not possible. I had a web request that had a possibility of failing, and I tried to "trap" for unsuccessful requests by checking {{webhookResponse.status}}. It never worked.

Alas, upon closer inspection, you only that smart value that if it's successful:

On successful webhook execution, you would be able access webhook response data using the following smart values:

I think we'll need to ask for a Feature Request. :-}

Thanks for the reply!

Hmm ok, I'll have to work around this in another way, then.

For information, since version 8.0 from Jira Automation.

The rule now continue even if the response is in error.

This will allow to test this value. 

What is strange is that ticket  is still open.
