Automation limits too restrictive

Getting thoughts from other power users out there about the automation limits. 

We are in the software dev industry so naturally we want to automate things as much as possible. We are on the standard plan at 1,700 execution a month (Nov '23 numbers) and we are struggling to not exceed the monthly limit. When we hit the limit, things do not go well as those executions are huge time savers for us. 

The financial jump from standard to premium, almost doubling the license cost ( just doesn't make sense. 

Is anyone else easily hitting these limits? 


For my case it's a bullet in the foot. We have 8 users and my usage is about 15000 per month. 

Even the premium plan does not help, I will certainty not use Jira anymore in a short period. 

I haven't done much with the built in automation;  with that disclaimer in mind, the REST API exposes (IMHO) every object you need to automate in and outside of Jira.  As you mentioned you are a software shop, put together something like this:

  1. Set up a filter in Jira that identifies the automation candidates. Can be as simple as all tickets updated in the last 30 minutes.  But you probably also want some sort of "automation complete" flag that gets set to "FALSE" in your workflow.
  2. Run a timed script at the appropriate intervals (30 minutes in this example) to extract the filter results through the API
  3. Act on each ticket -- whether that is build new tickets from it, send a notification to an outside software app, etc.
  4. Update the ticket automation flag to "TRUE".

Hope this helps
