Automation: Retrieve the project the release belongs to when using the Version released event

david_stevens February 21, 2024



I am looking at creating a slack message that is triggered by the Version released event.

In my slack message it would be great if I could access the project the version belongs to with something like

{{ }} {{}} has been deployed :tada:


I haven't managed to find it,   so I am considering adding a condition to check if the release is from a project,   but that too I cannot find.




Many thanks!

Hi @david_stevens 

For a question like this, please post an image of your complete automation rule, images of any relevant actions / conditions / branches, an image of the audit log details showing the rule execution, and explain what is not working as expected.  Those will provide context for the community to offer ideas.  Thanks!

Until we see those...

If you need the project name in the message, you could first use lookup issues with JQL to find the issues in the version released, and then get the project from one of those with:


Kind regards,
