How can I access transition properties in Jira Automation

Layton Everson March 31, 2021

I have a scenario where I want to run an automation rule based on a transition... the status doesn't change so I am trying to access transition properties to identify the transition the user clicked. How can I do this?

Hi @Layton Everson 

Interesting question. For self transitions (I guess that's what you have) you can configure a rule to trigger on Transition where from and to status are same. Jira's issue history will still have this information which you are access using this smart value.

{{changelog}}

This will give you something like this.

{status=[ChangeItemBean{field='status', fieldType='null', from='3', fromString='In Progress', to='3', toString='In Progress'}]}

I hope it helps. Let me know if that's what you were looking for.

Is there a way to see the output of {{changelog}} ?

Just use it in the comment or log. I shared above the output of {{changelog}}

And you are saying that the change log will contain the transition properties? I'll check it out.

Hi @Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ 

I have a similar question. 

I have 2 self loop from a status(Done), which performs different action when triggered.
Is there a way in automation to perform the same action by checking the transition name.

Currently I have a script in post function, which perform the action but I would like to achieve the same via automation and not script.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
