Hello! I am hoping you all can help me... On the first day of each quarter I need to have a ticket created for a list of components. I have about 200 components that I need to do this for so was hoping there was a way to do a FOR EACH branch. But I can't figure it out. (I got the trigger, just cant figure out the component)
On November 1st I want to have a ticket created that is the same except I want it for ONLY COMP2 and COMP3.
Any assistance would be greatly appeciated
Hi @Kelly Hansen -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
Where is your list of values located?
If it is in a smart value / list, you could use the Advanced Branch feature: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Automation-articles/Branching-over-smart-values-in-Jira-Automation/ba-p/1741935
Please note: this type of branching processes in parallel and asynchronously, and so there is no guarantee of the order of your issues created.
If you need more help setting this up, please post images of your rule, the actions / conditions / branches, the audit log details, and explain what is not working as you expect.
Thanks for that information, and...
The advanced branch can work from any smart values provided, not just from issues. If you provided the components in a created variable (or smart value expression) that could still drive the branch.
You note a "sub component". What do you mean by that?
Is it a subset of all possible components set up for your project, based upon a particular timeframe the rule runs?
Im sorry Bill I am trying to follow what to do with the advanced branching but cannot figure it out.
The first step on Advanced branching is the Smart Value, which I am assuming is where I put my components, but what I am confused on is how do I enter my component values? This is a screenshot of what I put together. But I keep getting an error when I try to add more than one smartvalue. Not to mention its not allowing me to have spaces but my component names have spaces in them.
As you want to create issues for a list of components, you may store that list in a created variable, and then use that later in the advanced branch, by using split() to create a list. That type of branch can use any smart value as a source.
