Jira automation advanced company condition with linked issue


Does anyone know if it's possible to use advanced compare condition in Jira automation to match a project name?

So far I have this:


But when I transition an issue the audit log is saying that the issue didn't meet the criteria.

The issue I'm transitioning has an issue with the link type "clones" which is in the Digital Engineering project.

Oh and I've tried putting Digital Engineering with quotes and without.

Hi @Lucy Cookney 

Welcome to the community.  So if I understand correctly, when you transition the trigger issue to "In Development", you want all clones that are in project Digital Engineering to be transitioned to "In Progress".  

My first question would be whether the trigger issue and related issues are part of the same project.  If no, then you need to make sure that the rule scope includes all projects impacted.

Second, you shouldn't need an advanced compare condition.  You should be able to set the Digital Engineering project in your branch rule.

Oh how silly of me :D - I think I went down a bit of a rabbit hole.  Obviously, it works that way...thank you :)
