Using trigger "When: Pull request created" how can you run the rule only once for multiple issues

In Jira Automation when using the When: Pull request created I typically have an Issue fields condition step that checks for a Component field value and then post a message to Microsoft Teams.

The issue I'm facing is that if the pull request in question contains more than one issue it will post multiple messages to teams, one for each issue in the pull request.

Is there a way of validating the component of either all or the first issue in the pull request and proceed to only post a single message to Microsoft Teams.

Good to know.

Hi @Marc-André 

Full disclosure: I am not actively using the DevOps triggers at this time, and based on what I understand about them, I wonder if you could...

  • When the pull request trigger fires the rule, it has the {{pullRequest.title}}
  • As you note the title contains multiple issues, you could parse those issue keys out using the text functions and RegEx
  • Then pick one of them (e.g. first) to get the sampled key
  • Use an Advanced Compare Condition to prevent a loop, only proceeding if the trigger Issue key matches the sampled key
  • Log your message to Microsoft team


Best regards,
