Project Automation Performance -- not for Server?

Our automation screen looks similar to the screenies but does not include "View Performance Insights". Does anyone know if this is Cloud only or something? I am hoping it is included in Data Center as that's our future... or maybe we aren't on the right version? Server 8.13.19 does not have this, is all I know for sure.

This remains a concern. My users are asking we would add a global automation rule that starts with big conditionals:


When any comment is added

   If the issue is included in (not simple filter)

      Do something good


I am balking as this would seem an obvious way to tank performance. Advice?

Agreed: firing the global rule for every comment and then not processing could be an processing hit...and I would measure that to confirm the impact before trying anything different/more complicated.

Depending upon what "do something good" is and how soon you need it after the comment is added...How about inverting this: use a scheduled trigger with the complicated filter and use a condition to test for a recently added comment?  This would then only fire when there are issues meeting the filter, and only proceed when there was a recent comment.

Hi @Robert Leachman 

First thing, I am using Cloud and not Data Center/Server versions...

The documentation for Data Center/Server does show this feature is available:

Kind regards,

Good hit, thanks Bill! 

I wonder if it released with V8, that would explain it... I came up short finding it in release notes though.

That's interesting.  Perhaps check with your admin to check if there is an update to the automation addon. 

And, I guess it is also possible that only the Pro (paid) and not Lite (free) version has this feature, although I would find that surprising as it is essential to manage usage and troubleshoot misbehaving rules.

I am the admin! And this is Atlassian's add-on, I can't think of a more Pro setup than we are running :)

Like Bill Sheboy likes this

Jira Data Center/Server has two possible versions of Automation for Jira.  Here is the comparison of the versions, paid and free, to help you confirm which one you have, and the marketplace link to confirm you are updated:

Oh! Can confirm we are Pro so that's not the issue.
