Jira Automation "Only include issues that have changed since the last time this rule executed" miss



Some of my Automation rules are "doing nothing" because of this:

I can remember that tick box.. but can't find it.

I can see the sentence, but there is no box to tick or untick.

What I'm missing here?

I can confirm the issue (Jira Server v8.5.8 Long Term Support Release + Automation for Jira Server add-on v7.2.8). Having the same problem where some of the check boxes are no longer visible / not displayed anymore. Definitely NOT a browser-related issue either, as I have already tried with different browsers (on Mac and PC). Same problem everywhere.

This is a rather annoying bug, too, as it makes it extremely difficult to see if an option is currently enabled or disabled – trial & error being the only way to tell.

A fast fix would be very much appreciated!


Just read on a different thread that the issue is probably related to running a specific version of Adapatavist Script Runner:

Downgrade to an earlier version of Script Runner seems to be a viable temporary solution until a fixed version of Script Runner becomes available.


Unfortunately, updating both ScriptRunner and Automation for Jira (A4J) to their latest versions (6.23.0 and 7.2.8 respectively) did NOT do the trick, yet.

The issue with the "invisible" check boxes persists.

Hi @betigolo 

I see a second check box missing on your screen. At least it should show greyed out when not possible to select in a specific condition/state - I have never seen it is missing, though.

Out of curiosity, are there more check boxes missing apart from they two? I am wondering if it could be a browser related issue.

Have you installed latest updates for Automation and tried to disable/re-enable the App?
