There is no such postfunction by default. You can use script runner ( or JSU App (

If you don't want to pay for these App, you can write your own App with postfunction. Tutotorial by Atlassian which can help you to do this is here: (in Part 2. Create the workflow post function)

Thank you!!

Hi, by using {{initiator.displayName}} it should work I think

or {{initiator.accountId}}

Hi @Anna I think you are talking about Cloud and Automation, but original theme is marked as "server" :)

oups sorry. And you don't have automation on server ?
