Automation - manual trigger - get unreleased versions listed for user input

Christophe H-M April 18, 2024


For the future I have created an automation rule which is triggered each time a new version/release is created, and the rule will create a set of pre-defined EPICs. This is working fine.

Now in the system we do have already couple of existing versions for which I would need the same set of Epics to be created. I could create them manually but I'm looking for a more automated way. So I want to create a rule, manually triggered which would take a version name as input and then create the set of Epics.

I know how to ask the user to enter a version name, but here as we need to copy an existing version name I though maybe I could get a droplist containing all unreleased versions of my project so the user can just pick the right one.

I checked the possible user inputs but it is always for the user to input something, not to select something from Jira.

Is there a way to achieve what I'm looking for?


Thanks for your help in advance

Hello @Christophe H-M 

No. The options you can present in Manual trigger are hardcoded option you put in and cannot be dynamically loaded like you are looking for.

Apologies in advance but I think you are overthinking this.. Just manually copy / paste to input the version so rule can create these epics, otherwise you need to think of another trigger to achieve this.

OOTB jira cannot cannot solve this.

Hello Kalyan,

this is what I thought but it was worth asking anyway. Thanks for the quick feedback. I manually set the name in the input field and that worked of course. I love this automation capability!
