How can I see the url of web request in automation logs

Joshua Bennett March 29, 2024

I am creating a Jira automation rule to send a web request and am getting a 500 errror. 

In order to troubleshoot this, it would really help if I could see the url being produced in the automation rule. 

Is there any way to see this? 

I know you can use 'validate your web request' for this, and this does show you the url being produced. But this is no good to me as my url is comprised of smart variables - until the rule gets triggered these smart variables have no value. 

So I need to see the content of the web request actually going out when the rule is triggered.

Hi Joshua,

One way to do this is to create a variable to save the entire URL, perhaps named varUrl using the Create Variable action. 

Then write {{varUrl}} to the audit log to see it.  The same variable may then be used as the URL for the Send Web Request action to confirm both are the same value.

Kind regards,
Bill

This is a fantastic idea that I should have thought of! Thanks so much!

None of these suggestions provide what was asked for.. Logging the URL called in a send web request that contains smart values.

Hello @jb 

Just log the URL you are using which has smart values. It will render the values being passed.
