Jira Automation - Sending only one email and not per issue

Hi everyone,

For the below conditions and actions I am receiving an email per issue and I want to receive only one to alert me that more than 5 issues were created in the last 1 hour as per the JQL search. Also if there are 7 issues detected, for example, I receive 7 identical emails. I am not able to run the scheduled start without selecting: "run a JQL search and execute actions for each issue in the query".


Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!

Hi Dayana,

Here is one I use and it works great.


@John Funk Thank you for the suggestion. I am still receiving an email per each issue.

Can you share your rule? 

This took me way too long to work out, however the answer is to use the 'distinct' limiter.  Paste this in the To (or cc or Bcc) field and it will send the email to an assignee only once, regardless of the number of issues they have in the list: {{lookupIssues.assignee.emailAddress.distinct}}
