Cloning an issue To a different board on transition

I have added an automation that must clone an issue to a different project on a particular transition. 

When the rule runs, it keeps saying "No Actions Performed" and I can for the life of me not figure out why. 

I have tried two solutions:

Hi @Sune Fonternel ,

it would be good to have a view of your complete log. I wonder if it is a permissions issue? That is, does automation have the necessary permissions to create an issue in the other project. It might be interesting to simply create a manual rule that does what you’re triggered role does to help with troubleshooting the issue. This is often my approach. A manual rule allows me to easily add in components to better diagnose. I also make use of the log action to record conditional information when the roll is triggered. Again a view of your automation log would be quite helpful here.

Hi Jack, 

Thanks for the reply. 

Please forgive my ignorance, what is a manual rule? 


Here's the log:



And here's showing the ticket actually does match the conditions:


Hi @Jack Brickey , I've followed your suggestion to run a manual rule and see if that makes a difference. It does exactly same thing, states the rule has run but no actions were performed due to the story not matching the condition (which it does).


Any other ideas?

Is there a way I can add better logging using JQL to see exactly what it thinks is not meeting the condition?
