What the name of the 'Automation' group or how to exclude Automation from workflow validators?


Hey, there are some automations performed by 'Bot'.

After adding validators on some workflow statuses I'm getting issues with automation.

In validation settings, I can exempt groups, but I can't figure out which group belongs to 'Automation' actor since it's not a real user.

I need a different solution on how a Bot could ignore all human stuff ;)

Hey, @Alexey 

You need to use project role: "atlassian-addons-projects".


Users like automation or other users created by third apps are includ in project role "atlassian-addons-projects" not a group in jira.


Hope this helps.



Thanks, closest to that is atlassian-addons-admin

That one should work. 

Unfortunately, that works only for some validators.
Field Required validators (check if a field is empty) got no except option.

Any workarounds here?
