How do I trigger Automation on a GitHub PR status change of Draft to Final?

John King March 19, 2024

We have a workflow that flags issues in progress when a PR is created.  This provides visual feedback to peer reviewers on the team, and provides informational feedback to why a story in progress is currently not moving.   We can create automation to do this, by using the trigger on PR created, and checking the state.   While I have found triggers for PR create, merge, and failures, I do not see a trigger on a change to a PR.

Are there any workarounds for this?

Hi @John King 

As far as I got it right the trigger should be something that happens only within github (tbh I know github but I´ve never heard of Draft/Final state).


My suggestion would be to work with an "Incoming webhook" trigger in Jira Automation and create this webhook within github (as I dunno where exactly this is set please see and find the appropriate webhook in the following link to the docu of the github api):


Hope I could give some helpful hints with this. Please let us know if there are any further questions.
