I'm wondering if there is a way for a change in status on jira issue to trigger a github action, like merging a pull request.
I know you can use webhooks to send PR information to linked jira issues and change the issue status, I'm wondering if the reverse can be done. Can jira send information back to github?
Hello @Victoria Lee ,
Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
If I understand correctly you would like to trigger a github action automatically, when an issue in Jira changes status.
Now, if my understanding is correct, you should be able to achieve this by creating an Automation Rule (either global or specific to a project) that on the desired status change will send a REST API request to, for example, the GitHub Pull Request API (allows you to list, view, edit, create, and even merge pull requests. Comments on pull requests can be managed via the Issue Comments API).
For further details and examples please see:
I hope this helps.
