Advanced compare condition Edited

I am trying to Automate one scenario where I need to use 

Advanced compare condition.

Now in this the field that I need to compare is Custom-Cascading field. 


It has like name as "Stage" with drop down as 




Now what I want is to compare if any user updates Stage field as Approved 

In JIRA search, this field value is displayed as 01-Contract - Approved 

What I am not able to understand is how to write it in Advanced compare condition

Hi Peyush,

Try {{issue.Stage}} = Approved

And if that doesn't work, give this a try:

{{issue.Stage.child.value}} = Approved

Hi John,


Value of field Stage has 2 drop downs: 




with further if you eg select 01-Stage, it will show another set of values as: 





When you check for JIRA in search or export report, this whole field value will be displayed as:

01-Stage - A

01-Stage - B



Should I still use just as you suggested?

If Approved is not in the list for any other first level option, it might work. 

Otherwise, you can add two Advance Compare conditions - one to check the parent.value and then one to check the child.value.

tried the way you mentioned 

with first value as {{issue.Stage.parent.value}}

and Second value as {{issue.Stage.parent.value}} = 04-QA

it doesnt work, am I doing anything wrong?

Can you share a screenshot of your latest rule and the audit log where it didn't work? 

John Funk Community Leader May 17, 2021

Actually, you shouldn't be using the advanced compare because they are not really two different fields - they are one field. 

Try changing the compare to just a JQL condition with {{issue.Stage}} = Approved

hm so my Problem Statement is I want that if anybody changes this Stage field to 01-Contract in any JIRA instance, ENgineering JIRA should automatically get updated and so I need to put a checkpoint or condition to trigger this. and If I use this as a trigger point, I can go and take action on Linked issues of this JIRA

If I use JQL query, it will be difficult to use automation to trigger events on linked issues but I will try that way as well Stage_1.pngStage_2.png

with the screenshots I have shared, condition passes in all cases 

ok using your suggestion of using JQL and putting in multiple conditions, I have been able to find a workaround for this
