Can I use issue property to trigger the Automation rule?


I was wondering if it's possible to use issue properties as an Automation trigger. For example when the issue property gets updated (

I was looking around and couldn't find the way to do it so I assumed it's not possible but I just wanted to double-check if that's really the case.

Thank you,

Hey Nikki,

I am not aware of any rule triggers that could take advantage of that. Maybe using a webhook that gets fired when it changes? But that gets into stuff way beyond my expertise. 

Hi @Nikki Zavadska _jexo_ 

Yes, what John notes:

I tried a couple of experiments with automation rules and updating entity properties...I found neither the generic "issue updated" trigger fires nor is the change recorded in the issue history.  And, I could not find any suggestions to add this capability in the Jira Cloud or Code Barrel public backlogs.

Kind regards,
