Jira automation prevent duplicate branch creation

I have created an automation rule that creates a branch when a Jira task has been moved to in progress.

In the event that the task is moved back to the assignees TODO to fix a change and the assignee moves it back to their In Progress column again how to prevent the rule from trying to create the same branch again?

Hi @Dominick Marino 

There are several ways to do this, depending upon your rule structure.

  1. You could set a field, add a label, etc. to indicate the branch has been created.  And the rule could test for the absence of this indicator before proceeding.
  2. You could use the Send Web Request action to call a REST API function in your source control tool, checking if the branch exists before proceeding.
  3. You could use the JQL operator WAS IN and a condition to check if the issue was previously in the status:

The first approach may be easy to try, and to make adjustments as needed.

Kind regards,

Ok, thanks. I will give these options a look and see what I can achieve.
