I've noticed that my checkbox-triggered automations stopped working in the past week or so.
I've changed parameters on the condition to every possible combination of settings available (even the ones I knew wouldn't work, but just to cover all bases) and am having no luck.
Is this an understood bug? Have things changed and I totally missed it?

Feel free to disregard the pointless redaction.
Hi @Ben Golder
Have you considered inserting a Log action after the trigger and before the condition to log the value of the checklist values? That will help you diagnose if something in the values has changed, and so the condition is not being met.
I haven't done that yet, but I modified parameters in a test to only react under a single, specific box being toggled to [true] and the automation logs responded accordingly by showign that an event was triggered as a result of me checking said box off. I sanity checked by checking and unchecking the box when the ticket was in other statuses outside of the one prescribed for this automation and it wouldn't trigger. Same if I checked off any/all other boxes independently of the checkbox of interest.
Would there be something else that having the logs could provide knowledge on considering the automation isn't technically "broken"?
Thanks for that information. I was suggesting the use of the log to confirm that the smart value was indeed parsing as you expected, particularly because this is a custom field.
Now that you have verified that it works for one value for a specific trigger, try using the generic trigger again (field changed) and see what a logged value is and see if it matches what you expect.
