One of Automation for Jira's strengths is its flexibility, but this also means that when something goes wrong, there are a number different things that could be the root cause.

Here are some of the common ways we at Code Barrel go about trying to debug rules:

  1. Check the Audit log for clues
  2. Use the Log action to print out smart-values into the Audit log.
  3. Use Manual triggers for easy testing
  4. Disable other 3rd party add-ons that may be causing issues

I've detailed these more at How to debug Automation rules
