Creating automation with condition on release fields

yanivlt May 12, 2024

I am looking to create an automation where:

  • When a release is created
  • If it has a specific value inside it's description field then
  • issues will be created under it

How do I handle the condition part?

Hi @yanivlt 

you can access the new version (if the creation is the trigger) with smart values. 

For version, you can use:

  • {{versions.name}} - Returns the name of the affects version

  • {{versions.description}} - Returns the description of the affects version.

  • {{versions.archived}} - Returns true if the affects version is archived, and false if not.

  • {{versions.released}} - Returns true if the affects version is released, and false if not.

  • {{versions.releaseDate}} - Returns the affects version's release date. Can be combined with other date and time

See Automation smart values - issues | Cloud automation Cloud | Atlassian Support for more info.

For your case it should look something like this:

The smart value is wrong.

It needs to be version without the "s" -> {{version.description}}

The reference is from the Issue section, so for when you access the fix version of an issue. It's a bit confusing.

I tested that on my site and it definitely works.
