Automation: Execute action only once for all JQL results

I have a scheduled automation (in Automation for Jira Plugin).


- Cron Expression: 0 0 5 1/1 * ? * (At 05:00:00am, every day starting on the 1st, every month)

- JQL: "Organizations = null" (results in multiple tasks)


- Send Mail: Mail should contain a list of all results in the previously executed JQL query. My approach:

<li>{{key}} - {{summary}}</li>

The problem is that it sends out n Mails for all results of the JQL query, but I actually only want 1 E-Mail with the complete list of all results. How can I do this?

PS: I also tried using my JQL query as condition and not in the trigger configuration itself, but this is not possible because an Error pops up when publishing: 

The rule has been configured with components that require issues to be provided by the trigger. You need to use the option to run JQL to provide issues. The following components require issues: JQL condition

Thanks in advance.

Try set checkbox 'Process all issues produced by this trigger in bulk'




Thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately I do not have this option:


I suppose you are using the server version and maybe I do not have this option because we are using the cloud version. 

Best Regards


Could You please check version of the plugin automation and jira?

Administration -> Addons-> manage addons.



Our Version is: 1.3.1-AC
fyi: I found it under "Manage Apps", maybe also because it's cloud version.

Best Regards

Is there any update/solution on this? I am still looking for this.

Still waiting on this too.

Automation for Jira Version:1.4.1-AC

There is now "Lookup issues" action, which collects issues by JQL. Then you can use tag {{lookupIssues}} ( or in loop {{#lookupIssues}} ) as a smart value in other actions i.e. "Send email".

Hi, I am not able to find the check-box.

Any reason for this? Is Admin rights required for this or do I have to install any plug-in?

Thanks for your help!
