Adding a fix version in Jira Automation isn't working

I've been trying to automatically add a fix version when an issue is added to a sprint but no matter what I've tried it does not seem to work. This is what I have in the additional fields section.
The variable {{fixVersionName}} is used to create the new fix version, which works as expected, I just can't seem to get it to add it to the issue. If I choose the fixVersion option form the drop down above it does correctly add the fix version but it removes any fix version that was already there. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @Robin Murray 

Try following JSON:

"update": {
"fixVersions" : [
"add": {
"name": "{{fixVersionName}}"



Hi @Piotr Zadrożny _Eyzee_ 

That worked perfectly.

Thank you,
