Rename the "Automation for Jira" bot

Hi all,
More of a nicety but was curious if anyone knows how to change the name of the "Automation for Jira" bot that sends automated comments, transitions issues etc.

In Legacy automation you had the option to choose whether an automation came from Automation for Jira or a specified account.

Thanks in advance

@Zeke Furness You cannot rename this bot unfortunately, however you can change the 'Actor' of the rule to the user who triggered the event, or to a single user.

In our instance, we have created a 'service account' - which does use up a license, however this 'user' can be added as the actor for all automation rules so that you don't need to see' Automation for Jira' for everything

No worries @Zeke Furness ! If this answered your question feel free to hit the Accept Answer button as it may help other users in the future with a similar question

There is a similar feature request (which seems to be for Jira cloud though the URL contains the word SERVER):
