Jira Automation - User Smart Value for Manual Rule Executor

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Dec 16, 2020

Hello Everyone!

I have a manual Jira Automation Trigger that when executed will create a new issue.  I'm trying to figure out what smart value will allow me to dynamically add the person who executes the rule as a watcher on the new issue. 

The person who executes the trigger will not necessarily be the person who created the original issue the trigger was executed from or the assignee of that issue at the time the rule is executed. 

The documentation on smart values doesn't seem to list what I'm looking for.  Does anyone have any experience with this?

does {{}} work for you?

Thanks @Jack!

I'm not sure how I missed that, but it's right in the docs here:

well it isn't like there are a billion things documented.... needle in the haystack ;-)

Yes, and... I suggested they create an automation documentation page that is like the REST API one, where the whole list of values and functions can be searched on one page, with expandable sections, and including the scope/supported apps (Jira Cloud, JSD, Jira Server).
