How can I automate assigning earliest open FIX VERSION to status selected

This is what I'm looking for:

Every time I select status CLOSED, I want earliest open Fix Version to be automatically assigned.
Is it possible to do this in JIRA?


Thank you in advance!

Hello @Vera_Rabkina

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Per your description, I understand you would like to automatically add the older unreleased version to your issues when you transition them to the "Closed" status. Is that correct?

You can achieve this goal using the Jira Automation functionality. These would be the steps:

  1. Navigate to your Project > Project settings > Automation
  2. Create the following rule, replacing the status "Done" to "Close" (I only had the status "Done" in my test instance):

The rule above will add the version that is in the bottom position of the release page of the project, which is the oldest unreleased version by default. It will not consider the version start or release dates.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Hi Petter, thank you a lot for the reply. Could you please make sure the screenshot attached is correct, looks like it is for another issue?

But thank you anyway, this is already very helpful :)

Hello @Vera_Rabkina

You are welcome!

Thank you for pointing out my mistake. Indeed, I have uploaded the wrong screenshot in my last reply.

I edited it with the correct one now. Please, let me know if that automation works as you need.

Thank you @Petter Gonçalves 
Does this solution support Cloud version?

You are welcome, @Vera_Rabkina

The site where a tested the automation above is a Jira Cloud site, so it might work in the same way for you.

Have a nice weekend and let us know if you have any other questions.

Hello @Petter Gonçalves 
Apologies for the intrusion. I would like to replicate your automation rule described above, but when replicating steps, the drop down menu does not include 'Next Unreleased Version'. 

Can you please help on troubleshooting it?

Any help/advice would be appreciated :)
