I have just created a new Jira Cloud Server, but I don't see automation anywhere. The system app is not installed, and the automation section from the settings is completely missing.
I think a lot of people are getting confused by the dark mode - it's just my darkreader extension :) I am on Jira Cloud, not on a server
Although quite heavily disguised in dark mode, this does look like cloud to me guys. I don't see issues or boards in the menu up there.
Having said that, automation should normally be on the page you showed a screenshot from, on the bottom left below Lexorank management. That could be a bug or a temporary glitch.
You could try to access the automation rules through this url directly: yourinstance.atlassian.net/plugins/servlet/ac/com.codebarrel.addons.automation/cb-jira-automation-rules
Yes, this is Jira Cloud. The dark mode is just me using the darkreader extension to force all websites into dark mode :) it works pretty well for most sites, including Jira.
I tried visiting the link, but it just gives a small popup at the bottom that some problem has occured.
