Do we have an option to run effectors automatically?

I need to run effectors when there is a change in calculated value in a formula field. Do we have any configuration to achieve this ? or else is there a workaround?

Could you provide the steps to do this in on-prem JIRA version?

Hi @Babith C_J_ , 

A month back , i too was looking for the same and got a solution ! 

And Yes! we can achieve it with the help of ScriptRunner Jobs by scheduling it. Please refer the below ALMWorks Wiki and link for more details, 
Run all effectors by schedule (

Solved: Structure Effectors - automatic run (

Hope this helps you ! 


Thanks @YogeshKR .I had seen this suggestion while searching on this topic but yet to try as am not familiar with ScriptRunner. Will try it. Can this be used to automatically update fields when there is a change in calculated formula value in a structure?so that it immediately reflect values "On change" than waiting for a schedule to run? Thanks for your suggestion.
