For rules that are listening to the same trigger, the order is non-deterministic. No way around that!

Your only options afaik are to

  • merge the rules, or to
  • re-define the 2nd rule to listen to another trigger (e.g. changes to a certain field), allow it to be triggered from other rule actions; and in the last step of your 1st rule, implement the action that triggers the 2nd (e.g. change a certain field)

Hello @ADM Amar Msaid , 

As @Jan-Hendrik Spieth mentioned it is a limitation of Native Jira cloud feature that the automation rule could not execute in determined order. Jira do have a feature request to address the same.

I found a community discussion where user has tried some workaround to execute the automation rule in a specific order you can try to check that :

Hope the information would help you.

Have a nice day ahead!
