Automation for Jira: Trigger if certain label was added. How?

I am struggling with a case, where I would like an automation rule to trigger if a certain label was added. I can use the "field value changed" trigger, but this doesn't allow to check if some specific label was added or removed. How do I do this?

Hey @flaimo - you are almost there!

When: Value changes for "Labels"

If: Labels contain any of (Label of your choice)

Then: Actions you want performed

this doesn't work. it triggers every time, regardless if the label was added, or if it was already there before (and the rule was triggered because another label was added).

It will always be triggered because a value changed - the important thing here is if the IF condition kicked in or not :) do you mind sharing your current recipe? 

Misunderstood the issue at hand - I figured it out:

So you basically have to make a double IF check here comparing the fieldChanged before and exclude it from the trigger if it was already there.

Like # people like this

that did it the trick. thanks for the example.

This does not work for me; would someone be able to provide guidance?
