Automations completely inactive or strongly delayed in more orgs Edited

Hi all,

from 2 PM of today, we have encountered strong slowdowns in the execution of some automations for my projects, where the issue fields were updated with a delay of 15-20 minutes, while almost all the other automations (scattered for the different projects) are completely stopped and no movement is recorded in the respective Audit Log.

I state that the states described in the automations exist and are connected to the workflows related to the issues. Furthermore, there is no permission constraint neither on the "Automation for Jira" user nor on groups, roles or users who can or cannot edit or transit issues.

Obviously, the automations worked perfectly before 2 PM and no change was done on the security.


I tried to use several test automations on a new project with no restrictions or permissions, always using an administrative user; I tried to edit a field both when an issue was commented and when it passed from one state to another, but always without success. The log of the related automations does not report an error or any message.


I leave below an example of the malfunction of the automatism (the names are translated into Italian but have never been a problem).

The issue transition of the automation:3.png

The default workflow of the issue:


The status changing of the issue:



The automation tab with no updates:



The Audit Log of the automation with no updates:




I clarify that I had the same problem both in an org with Product Plan Standard, and in another with Enterprise.

Moreover, the automations scattered around the different orgs are not global, each project has its own set of automations


There is some problem with the automations on Jira ?


Please, help!

Thank you.

Hi all again,

just to inform you all, the problem seems to be resolved!

During the first hours of the day, many automations recover their pending work.


The automations run smootly now, great fix in a great timing!


TY, Atlassian ;)
