Import multiple rules into JIRA Automation Plugin

How to import multiple rules from one file into JIRA Automation Plugin?


I exported a rule to determine the JSON format. Then, in a text editor I copied/edited the rule to create multiple rules. Then, I created a file with multiple such rules.

 

{rule1}
{rule2}

 

The Import Rule imported only the first rule from this file.


I tried delimiting with commas and surrounding with braces - that failed.

 

[
{rule1},
{rule2}
]

 


I tried guessing a “rules” object, that failed.

 

{
 “rules”: [
               {rule1}
               {rule2}
             ]
}

 


Full example file:


 

{
 "name": "rule1",
 "actor": "a@email.com",
 "trigger": {
   "moduleKey": "com.atlassian.plugin.automation.jira-automation-plugin:issue-event-trigger",
   "params": {
     "eventSyncProcessingOverride": [
       "none"
     ],
     "userCustomFieldId": [
       ""
     ],
     "currentIsInGroup": [
       "true"
     ],
     "jiraJqlExpression": [
       "project = \"The Project\" AND reporter in membersOf(\"client-Acme\")"
     ],
     "jiraEventId": [
       "1"
     ]
   }
 },
 "actions": [
   {
     "moduleKey": "com.atlassian.plugin.automation.jira-automation-plugin:edit-issue-action",
     "params": {
       "jiraEditFields": [
         "customfield_10501=1234"
       ]
     }
   }
 ],
 "enabled": true
}

{
 "name": "rule2",
 "actor": "a@email.com",
 "trigger": {
   "moduleKey": "com.atlassian.plugin.automation.jira-automation-plugin:issue-event-trigger",
   "params": {
     "eventSyncProcessingOverride": [
       "none"
     ],
     "userCustomFieldId": [
       ""
     ],
     "currentIsInGroup": [
       "true"
     ],
     "jiraJqlExpression": [
       "project = \"The Project\" AND reporter in membersOf(\"client-Loony\")"
     ],
     "jiraEventId": [
       "1"
     ]
   }
 },
 "actions": [
   {
     "moduleKey": "com.atlassian.plugin.automation.jira-automation-plugin:edit-issue-action",
     "params": {
       "jiraEditFields": [
         "customfield_10501=5678"
       ]
     }
   }
 ],
 "enabled": true
}

Automation Tools for JIRA is based off of the JIRA Automation Plugin and offers a similar feature where you can select multiple JSON rule files to import all of them at once.
