Hello everyone, 

 

I hope everyone is happily debugging/coding. Just as the title states, I am having an issue where my Jira automation that has a Then: Send web request will randomly grab the incorrect attachment where it's manually being triggered. This is currently my custom data that I wish to send.

{
       "tmp": "{{issue.attachment.last.content}}",
}

In some instances, my ticket will grab the latest attachment while in some tickets will not. I've checked the time stamps to make sure that they have different CSVs data, but I can see that if there were 3 CSVs, my automation would grab the CSV second from the last attachment. Any help in the right direction would be most appreciated!

Thank you

Hello @Edward Yun 

{{attachment}} smart value gives you the full list of attachments sorted by Alphabetical order, not by date, so thats what you are seeing.

Only if you are using a trigger = "Field value changed" on Attachments, you can, in a hacky way, recreate the file content/URL like below:  {{baseUrl}}/{{changelog.Attachment.to}}/{{changelog.Attachment.toString}}

But because you are using Manual trigger, I dont know of a way to get that info. Sorry and hope it helps. Thanks!

Hi, Kalyan Sattaluri

This is perfect. I had no idea that it was based on alphabetical order and not by the dates. I have a possible solution based on what you have just explained for me.

I appreciate the assistance and can't thank you enough for your insights.

Thank you!
