I'm unable to find IF/ELSE statements in Jira's Automation platform


Was there a recent update that axed the IF/ELSE statements? All I'm seeing is Condition/Action components. These are not suitable for the solution I'm working on since if the first condition does not pass, all the proceeding conditions after that will not execute. Maybe I'm missing something? 


Here's a small example from a much bigger automation rule. If the first condition does not equal 'Not Stored', the second condition does not execute.

Under the New Condition listing you should see If/else block


I see. It looks like the If/Else is not available inside the 'For' branch. I'll have to go about this another way then. Thanks for the quick reply!

Hi @Jayce Canale,

That's right, an If / Else block isn't available instead a branch as we only support one level of branching and an if else is a branch in its own right.

Shout out if you need a hand rejigging your rule!
