Wanted: Clever combination of apps to automatically send out a specific attachemt



our client is looking for a solution to automate the following process so much, that it takes only one click:

  • Xporter App (could be something else too) generates a PDF (using the distinct name pattern) and attaches it to the issue

  • Something (Script Runner?) determines the most recent pdf that has been attached

  • That most recent PDF is then sent out via email

The Issue the PDF is added to is likely to have multiple attachments, none of which should be sent.
The issue may even have two PDFs with the same name pattern (older versions created on other days)

My suggestion for the client was to use the "Jira Email This Issue" Attachment picker, but that would
a) require to have two transitions (1st created PDF, 2nd sends Mails)
b) requires too many clicks

How could that be achieved?

Found 2 solutions:


"E-Mail this issue" is capable of adding only the attachment(s) added in the last transition to an email

2. Xporter has an email function too, you can also use a placeholder containing an email-adresse in the "to" field of the post function.
