In our service Desk from our production Jira instance, we have implemented Automation in 2 sections :
In the first section Automation Legacy we have some rules which gets executed as my own user which I do not want as it as automation process.
I have see that we have 2 internal users related to Automation which are :
Can I simply replace my current user by Automation Lite for Jira Cloud user as part of the Run As user for all rules belonging to legacy automation ?
Does that account has proper rights to execute all those default rules in place ?
Thanks for advise
Hello @serge calderara,
Thanks for reaching out to Community!
The default user to run legacy automation must be a project administrator with a Service Management license, but there is an exception.
On each automation rule, you can select the option “User who triggered the rule”, so it won’t show your name, but it will show from the agent that made the change.
Please, go to the Legacy automation and on each rule select “User who triggered the rule”.
If you have any other questions regarding this matter, please let us know.
The Automation Lite for Jira Cloud is the add-on user that was created when the Automation for Jira was not part of Jira/Atlassian.
Each add-on that is installed also creates a user so it can have the correct permissions on the site and projects. If the “user” exists, it means that at some point the add-on was installed on your site.
The groups added to this user are: atlassian-addons, jira-users, atlassian-addons-admin, jira-software-users, jira-servicedesk-users.
Since it’s not visible in the UI because it’s not a “real user” you can manage, it’s not possible to change the groups or add to the project as administrator.
