How to add Release Notes via Smart Values to an automated email send upon version release?



I have an active automation rule, which sends an email every time a new Version is marked as Released.


Is there a way to add the release notes directly into the automated email using automation/smart values? 


Looking forward to your replies! Thanks!

Hi @Desislava Dimitrova  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I know of two ways to do what you ask, depending upon whether or not you need the issue information in the email and your recipients have Jira access:

  1. If your recipients have Jira access, you could just send them a link to the specific release page, substituting in your information for company, project, and version: myCompany/browse/myProject/fixforversion/{{}}
  2. Use a Lookup Issues action to gather the issues and then iterate over them to send the details.  To do this please try:

Release Report rule:

  • Trigger: when version released
  • Action: lookup issues on JQL with fixVersion = '{{}}'
  • Action: send email with some markup for the list, substituting in your company URL and project name.
Release {{}} included these items:

<li><a href="{{url}}">{{key}}</a>: {{summary}}; {{assignee.displayName}}</li>{{/}}

Link to the version is:

Please see the Lookup Issues documentation to learn the fields available for you to include.

Best regards,
