Automation for Jira. Project roles.

I need to sent an email with help of "Automation for Jira" to all users in the project's role “Release Manager”. How can i do this with "smart values" of automation or maybe another way?

Hi @Maks 

I'm not sure this is possible at this stage; there are suggestions for both these things though:

  • AUT-991 - Ability to send email to all members of a project role
  • AUT-279 - Provide access to users in project roles via smart-values

It might be useful to keep your Release Managers in a multi-select custom field or a group, which can both be used in the "Send email" action.


Hi, Stephen

Thanks for the help.

This was useful, but I have many projects with different users, who have a project role “Release Manager” and they change quite often, so the option with groups and custom fields is not very suitable for me.

Hi Maks,

would it be suitable to do it using "bulk mail" page? I know this is not Automation, however.
Sending to a specific role is possible, though.grafik.png

For Role you could choose a different one - I only have the standard ones.

The page is reachable via:!default.jspa
