Just a few questions:

How did you automate it (rest/scheduler/active batch)?

What did you automate?

How often did you schedule it?

What is the full error, where did you see it?

What JIRA are you using (server/cloud)?


Hi ,

i have a first automation who copy the component on the summary.

and a second one whe the issue is updated to copy the new component on the summary.

the error message is Possible loop detected! Rule 'Update Request Participants list when issue edited [test]' was executed more than '20' times in last '500' ms..

I am using JIRA server

I did some more testing it seams like the loop is started because i have 2 rules that run on Issue Updated.  This does not make sense because both are supposed to run if 2 different JQL queries are met.  If i disable one of them then everything runs fine.
