How do I manually trigger an automation

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone could help me with my question. 

I created a manually triggered automation. But I could not find how I could actually run the automation.  I saw some posting that says....

To manually run a rule:

  1. On the issue view, navigate to the Automation tools and click Rule executions.

  2. Select a rule from the Run a manually triggered rule list, and click Run.

But I could seem to find the Automation tools. I'm using Jira Cloud. 

Can someone please show some screenshot where I could locate where I could run the automation manually?

If you're looking at an issue, it will be on the right hand column, there will be a field called "Automation" and then a lightning bolt and "Rule executions".  If you click on that, it will allow you to run a manual rule.

Thanks, Kristin.

For those using the new issue view, the Automation is shown in the attached screenshot.


Btw, is there a way I could update multiple issues at once through manual automation?




If you have the automation set up to affect multiple issues at once, then just running it on any issue will run the whole automation.  For example if you have a manual execution set to edit all issues that are in open status, then running the manual automation from any issue will edit all the issues in open status.

Hi Kristin,

Wonderful. I didn't know that is possible. I'll try it later. Thanks for the suggestion and your prompt replies.
