when issue moved trigger

I need a rule for when an issue is moved from ProjA to any other project.  Basically the opposite of the current trigger, which says:  "Rule executes when an issue is moved to this project."  I'm looking to create a rule when an issue is moved FROM this project.

Plenty of searching has not found the answer.  Any creative work arounds to this?  We are using server, not cloud.

Hi @Kris -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I wonder if you could use the generic Issue Updated trigger followed by an advanced compare condition to check the changelog for a change to {{issue.project}} 

  • first value: {{#changelog.project}}{{fromString}}{{/}} 
  • condition: is not equal to  
  • second value: {{#changelog.project}}{{toString}}{{/}}

Kind regards,

Thanks @Bill Sheboy  I'll give this a try!

Hi @Kris 

What's the Action that's triggered?

The Issue Moved trigger should still cover this:

  • Source Project: Project A
  • Target Project: Any Project

^ I.E it doesn't matter where it moves, it's the fact it did move.


Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_  perhaps I'm not understanding correctly.  Here is a screen shot of my rule.  I am able to change the source project to Project A.  But I  cannot change the target project to "any project". 

I need a rule from Project A (which is the only project I have automation permissions on) to any other project.


Hi @Kris 

It needs to be a Global Rule in this instance.

This is because the Target Project - i.e where the Issue has been moved to - is no longer your Project, so you no longer have permission to set automations against the Issue.

A Jira Admin will be able to help you create this :)
