Update Release Version description via automation rules

Is it possible to update Release Version description after issue is created by automation rules?


Here is how the rule is setup. I want to put the link to the created ticket in the Release Version that triggered the automation rule, is this possible in Jira without any plugins?

Hi @Danilo Simic 

Yes it is possible 

Send an web request using API to update the release description to newly created release

Here's the API for updating the version

The rule would involve

Version create trigger

Issue create action

Fetch issue action

Get Release and store the version id

Update release with information on getting the version id and issue link



Thank you for the answer. I will try this way. 

Just to note that I do not have experience with Jira Rest API so this might take some time for me. If it works I will accept the answer.

Once more, thank you for the answer and thank you for expanding my awareness and knowledge of Jira.
