jira automation accessing project properties


Is it possible with a jira automation rule to get a jira project property?  You specify the project property key and you get the project property value. I already searched in the available smart values but didn't find anything.

Hi @Luc Noppen 

You can read the entity properties, as is shown here for issues:

For a project property, it would be:


The key is context...if the trigger is for a project, use above.  If instead it is for an issue you might need to explicitly call the REST API from a web request in the rule to get the project to access the properties.  Before trying that, perhaps first try {{"myPropertyName"}} to see if they are available.

Kind regards,


I'll test this before accepting the answer.

Thanks for your reply.

Kind regards

Hi Luc,

what do you mean to get the jira property? What is your purpose?

If you mean to edit the property in automation there is a specific section to do that.

Hope it helps.



With your answer I'm able to set a project property and with the answer of Bill Sheboy I'm able to read the project property.

Your answers combined give me what I need.
