Automation Trigger to create a new Release Version Edited


Is there a way to trigger a new Release Version when i change the status of my release issue type? Can't figure out the best way to trigger this after my automatic creation of the Release issue type.

2 answers

This should be possible with Jira Automation:


You can create a trigger for "Issue Transitioned" and an action to release the version.

Hi John, thanks however I'm not actually wanting to release the version I just want to create a version and have it available to then assign my cases to it.

Hi Jesse,

You cannot automate the creation of a new release in Jira Cloud without possible using the API.

Ah! I stand corrected - this appears to be new. So have you tried that?
