How do you reference Fix versions - Next unreleased version in custom JSON?

I want to set my rule to add the Next unreleased version instead of setting it to the Next unreleased version but I dont know what the field name is called. This is what I'm envisioning:

"update": {
"fixVersions": [
"add": {
"name": fixversions.nextUnreleasedVersion
Is this possible? I've been looking for a way to see the corresponding json to my current rule action but I haven't found it.Screen Shot 2021-12-16 at 1.39.28 PM.png
Thanks for your help,

Hi @Lynne Robinson 

If I understand your use case, you want to add the Next Unreleased Version to fixVersion in addition to any current values in fixVersion.  Is that correct?  If so...

Short version: you cannot do that without a work-around

Longer version:

JQL knows about Next Unreleased Version for queries, and rules know about that value for field edits, but the issue fields know nothing about other versions/releases: only their current values.

One work-around would be:

  • save the current value of fixVersion in a created variable
  • use edit to set the value of fixVersion to the Next unreleased version
  • use the re-fetch action to reload the trigger issue
  • and now edit the issue again, adding the saved values from the created variable using the JSON edit format

Kind regard,

Thank you @Bill Sheboy for the workaround! Your steps worked perfectly and my fixVersions are now exactly what I needed. Appreciate the help!
