Automation - Use the Source of a Trigger to Populate Other Jira Objects


I am new to automation and didn't find a similar ask to this one on first glance.

I'm attempting to create an Automation Rule that will create multiple Issues when a new Version is created.  (I'm also using the Regular Expression filter on this trigger).


Trigger: New Version - RegEx: ^(Market Release)\b -(.{0,25})\b - (2021)\b$

I would like to create multiple issues based on the creation of this version and populate the newly created version in a Version Field on each issue.

Is it possible for me to reference the source trigger and perhaps use variables to do this?

Hi @Joshua Burke  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yes, you can do that.  For the version created trigger, the trigger version's smart value is {{}} and that can be assigned during the new issue creates.

Best regards,


Thank you, Bill!
