Hi Confluence automation experts,
we need your help: we are not getting anywhere with the creation of an automatic rule and hope to get a hint here about our error:
The goal is to insert a specific label (test1) in a space (space key: jp) on pages with "test1" in the title that do not already have this label. Therefore we choose the sequence via automation rules:
> When: Scheduled
>> Every week on Mon at 11:00 AM
> If: CQL condition
>> space = jp AND title ~ "test1" AND label != "test1"
> Then: Add label
After saving everything and publishing the rule we run a test and receive the following error:
Error in execution:
Expecting to have a content ID in context.. Trace ID: ec5f5a56-5a02-4331-. . .
@Oliver Siebenmarck _Polymetis Apps_ 's suggestion would definitely work! Another option is to use the "Branch rule / related entities" component in conjunction with the scheduled trigger. This will create a CQL search and execute the action applied within the branch rule on every result (for up to 100 results). This should help you apply the labels to pages that are already created.
We have a "for each page" branch component also coming soon that may help simplify some of these use cases.
Hi @Schuuudi ,
I'm by no means an expert in Automation for Confluence, but I just cannot pass on a label-related question.
That being said, I believe I know what happens. The Scheduled Trigger in Automation for Confluence runs without any specific page or space in context, basically meaning that it does not know which page to check and add a label to. The CQL you enter is just a condition, ie a check if a space/page that would be in context applies to your rule. It is not a list of all pages that your rule will be applied to.
Now, while that is mildly frustrating, there is a workaround to achieve the same result. And it doesn't even require an app.
Instead of running a rule every so often, you could simply add two rules triggered by "Page published" and "Page edited" respectively. On those rules, you can use your CQL query to check if the page title contains your keyword and then label the page accordingly. This approach has the additional advantage of adding the label almost immediately.
Hope that helps,
