Automation loop through WebResponse results

Nicole Ahlborn September 21, 2022

I am accessing the Tempo Plan Times in an automation via Web Response. Now I would like to know how to make a loop through the individual planed packages via the Jira automations. To get the ids of a specific description to delete the entire. Comparable to the loop you can create for LookupIssues.


  • Loop through entries
  • Condition:  If {{webResponse.body.results.get(entries).description}} contains "Firma AB
  • Then:  Delete Plan via Web Response 


Web Response Result with 2 entries 
"metadata": {

"count": 2


"results": [


"id": 30,

"startDate": "2022-09-20",

"endDate": "2022-09-20",

"description": "TEST-117 - Firma XY",

"plannedSecondsPerDay": 1020,

"includeNonWorkingDays": false,

"rule": "NEVER",

"recurrenceEndDate": "2022-09-20",

"totalPlannedSecondsInScope": 1020 },


"id": 31,

"startDate": "2022-09-20",

"endDate": "2022-09-20",

"description": "TEST-117 - Firma AB",

"plannedSecondsPerDay": 60,

"includeNonWorkingDays": false,

"rule": "NEVER",

"recurrenceEndDate": "2022-09-20",

"totalPlannedSecondsInScope": 60


Is this somehow possible? Any Ideas?

Hi @Nicole Ahlborn 

I'm still a bit of a novice myself with the Send Web Request, but you would need to perform an advanced branch against {{webResponse.body}}. You'll give your branch a variable like {{varIterate}} Then for each action you want to take you would simply go with {{varIterate.YOURDESIREDATTRIBUTE}} and it will process through the results.

NOTE - There will be a limitation of 50 results it can process in a single branch.

Hi @Mark Segall 
Thank you very much! Now it has finally worked.
I had to go one level further than body ({{webResponse.body.results}}), but it works!

Hi @Nicole Ahlborn or @Mark Segall , please share how you did this? I'm also in a similar situation

Hi @Christine Kihanya 

you can use the Advanced branching on Smart Values

In the step you just use an Advanced compare condition to get the one entry you need. 

e.G. check if the planed time is planned for this issue

Hi @Nicole Ahlborn ,

I'm trying to get the timestamp of the last status change.


This is what I've done:

The REST API url is https://<domain>/rest/api/3/issue/{{issue.key}}?expand=changelog 

With the response, I've used this smart value to display the logs starting with "On" for every line

On 2022-09-30T22:42:41.792+0000 resolution changed to Resolved status changed to Closed On 2022-09-30T20:55:15.242+0000 Workflow changed to Copy of DevOps Workflow On 2022-06-28T20:28:11.684+0000 Workflow changed to IT Testing Workflow On 2022-06-28T20:14:59.903+0000 Workflow changed to Helpdesk workflow On 2022-06-28T20:00:17.603+0000 Workflow changed to IT Testing Workflow


What I want is to only retrieve the latest status change created timestamp. This is what I've tried. I've created the advanced branching

My {{Hists}} variable has the below smart value. 



Condition: contains "status". But when I display the logs, I'm getting every field change, not just status 


See results:

Workflow, resolution, status


Any help is appreciated, thx.
