Jira Automation - Get created issue key

While using the Automation for Jira Cloud, is it possible to get the key of the issue that was created in the very same automation? 
Here's a screenshot of what I'm trying to implement. The issue is created perfectly - I just want to send the Key of the created issue over Slack/Teams/Email without using JQL/Lookup to fetch it.

Hi @Shahroz Naeem 


Try this



The previous issue created in this rule.



A list of issues that have been created in the rule.


Thank you! 😁

I'm sad that is hard to find again this version of getting (spent 1-2 hours to get this).

If you create more than one in single automation - you can use (even if created in Branch-rule):
{{createdissues.get(0).key}} - for first
{{createdissues.get(1).key}} - for second
