What notifications can only be sent from a workflow POST function

Hi, I was just wondering about workflow POST functions and the notifications that they send. So my question was, which notifications are specific to workflow POST functions and cannot be fired from any other place

Hello @Daniel Gatere 

There are no post-function events are limited to post functions, post-functions can trigger standard events like:

  • updating an issue's fields

  • generating change history for an issue

  • adding a comment to an issue

  • generating an event to trigger email notifications

  • trigger a webhook 
  • etc

Full documentation here

This kind of events can be triggered by additional add-ons or automation rules.

Validators and conditions are limited to workflows.

Why do you ask? You are trying to filter the events?

Hello @Olga Videc Thank you for your reply,

I receive multiple notifications and I wanted to filter only those that were triggered by workflow post functions.

lv, Daniel
