In Jira cloud automation, how can I get the smart value for the link type for an issue?
I have a rule that is triggered when it is transitioned, then it uses branching to loop through each linked issue for the trigger issue. So I can get most everything I need on the linked issue, but I have not been able to find a way to get the TYPE of linked issue.
I want to use it in an email saying something like Issue PRJ-123 has a link type of "Depends On" with issue PRJ-456.
How can I get the smart value for the type of link between the two issues?
(And I thought of using If branches and lookups for each type of link we have in our Jira instance, but that's a LOT of link types)
Hi @Cash Coyne
Information about the details of smart values, and their structure in the issues, is mostly not in the automation documentation. Instead try using the how-to for finding smart values, as that will show the full structure and how to get to the smart values:
For issue links, what you need are under the issuelinks, inwardIssue, and outwardIssue information.
