Confluence Automation doesn't work when the page uses a template

I'm using the automation that adds a label to a page when the criteria are met (after you publish a page).


As you can see below, this works the first time when I'd created a new page, entered the title Strategy2 and published.


The second time when created a new page, selected a template, entered the title Strategy2 and published, it did not work and No Actions Performed. 



Any help would be appreciated!

@Callum Long Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Let me start by saying that I have no experience using Confluence Automation. Something occurred to me while reading your question, though, so I will ask for this clarification that may then help someone familiar with automation answer you:

Are you naming your new page with the same exact title as the first page?

If so, you may be having an issue because you cannot have 2 pages with the same name in the same space—it may be interfering with Confluence seeing it as a new page.

@Barbara Szczesniak Hi Barbara. Good idea but I did consider this and deleted the page in between each test.

In fact Confluence wouldn't let me publish a page with the same name as an existing page, which is how I know I deleted it. Thanks for the suggestion nonetheless, this is my first time playing with Automation so I'm not much further ahead than you!
