How to fill insight custom field with insight object using automation


Hi all,

after the issue creation, I want to set an insight custom field with some insight object using automation.

Lookup objects part works fine: 




If I select the attribute from the lookup object that works fine and the Summary field is filled:




But If I try to fill the custom insight field with an Insight object that action returns

An error occurred while requesting remote information
Bad Request
No fields or field values to edit for issues (could be due to some field values not existing in a given project)
and the custom insight field remains empty. This is the configuration part:




Is there some simple solution to set the insight field with an insight object?

Thank you,

Hey @Petar Milavić ,

The Edit action you are using is expecting an IQL where you entered the {{lookupObjects}}

I suggest using the IQL you used to do the LookupObjects action in the Edit action. That should be enough.

Hi @Dirk Ronsmans

thank you very much, it works.
