Automation on Project Change

I've recently created some automation rules that need to run for every issue that ends up in a given project. They work fine when the issue is created directly within that project, but fail to run when an issue is moved from another project to this one. Evidently a moved issue does not qualify for the "Issue created" trigger or any transition post functions associated with the workflow state it moves to. So with those ruled out, how is it possible to reliably call an automation rule or post function when an issue is moved to a project? 

1 answer

You won't be able to trigger a post function based on an issue being moved, as those will only fire when an issue goes through a workflow transition. However, there is an "Issue Moved" event that you can leverage for your the automation.
