Automation: Issue Assigned Trigger

Can anyone tell me if the Issue that satisfies this trigger passes the issue to the the next component in the rule chain?

For example, I am using an if-else block for next component with a JQL of "assignee in membersOf("<a group name>")" To determine if the assignee is in the group.

It seems to me every issue is subject to this JQL not just the issue that caused the trigger so this JQL conditions may be useless.

Assuming this is the case, how can I restrict the test applied in the next component of the automation rule to only apply to the issue that caused the trigger?

Hi @Michael Marriott 

After the trigger add a branch rule only for the current issue:


The add any component you want inside this branch.

Hope that this is what you were looking for.



Might need some clarifications on your question in order to help you: What exactly is your current trigger? If your trigger is running on a schedule and searching a JQL, your action will apply to all issues fitting your query. Most of the other triggers are issue-specific, like for example if you have an issue transitioned trigger, which looks for issues transitioned to "Done", then it'll run each time an individual issue is transitioned to done and the action will be taken on only that issue.

Hi Patty, As per the post the trigger is "Issue Assigned".
