Automation Rules disappeared

Has anyone encountered an issue where Automation Rules would disappear from the Cloud Site? Nothing in the Audit Log (for Automation or for Add-ons). A whole bunch of rules just gone. shows a Scheduled DB Maintenance on May 9th (Sunday)

If I understand correctly, some of the data resides outside of our cloud site, somewhere on Is it possible that something happened on their side?

I strongly suggest you open a support case directly with Atlassian about that.

We did - haven't gotten anywhere so far. I would like to see if anyone else has run into the same issue.

Hi @Artem Fomin  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I have not seen rules disappear permanently/been deleted mysteriously before in our cloud instance.  Some of our users have been confused by the label filtering of rules hiding things.  And, I have seen the rule list get "stuck" so it didn't paint the list when performance was slow for Jira Cloud.

Are these project-scope rules or global/multi-project rules?

Have you checked with any assigned admins for the impacted scopes?

Are you consistently backing up your cloud instance?  If so, perhaps check if the rules are still available for restoration.

Best regards,


Thank you Bill. I did my homework before reaching out to Support and to the Community.

Our Prod site has several hundred rules that were created over the course of 12+ months. Our test site was created by importing a snapshot of Prod a couple of months ago. We've ran a UAT on our test site last week, focusing specifically on the Automation rules. They were there, now they are not. No trace of them.

Yikes, and sorry to hear that.  I hope support can find something for you.

My site admin and I did some tests, and found that when deleted by a person, the audit log continued to show rules removed by a person.  (I worried that like issues, deleted rules from cloud would vanish all traces.)  As there is no other way to delete rules yet, something's gotta be up on the Atlassian side of this symptom.

If you have the prior prod snapshot, can you restore it to a free instance, export the rules, and re-import them?

And FYI to save you some diagnostic time: we export our logs using webhooks to review them in SumoLogic, and they do not show anything about rules changes.  So if you are doing something similar for logging it may not help uncover the deletes either.

The problem is in a test environment (separate cloud site that we are paying for) where we were testing out new rules. So, we've lost the new rules, the old ones, and we'll now have to refresh the data, which sucks.

More importantly, we need to understand what happened here. If something like this happens on Prod, the impact will be devastating.

Please post back what you learn from support.  Thanks!

From Support:

"With regards to why the rules were no longer available seems to be related to [cloud site] being disabled and re-enabled. The rules that the devs were able to find are associated with the disabled JIRA instance, which seems to indicate that [cloud site] was disabled and then re-enabled when performing the migration of the production data in this migration support case."

We are following up to see who/when disabled this cloud site, but it looks like Atlassian Dev folks were able to identify the root cause.

Thanks; that is helpful information as I do not have much experience disabling a site. Good to know that some content can be dropped prior to re-enable.
