Upon issue creation, if a certain option in a certain custom field is selected, I'd like a certain user to receive a general email notification about it.
I tried the project automation's "send email" feature, but the email editor itself is kind of meh. I simply want it to send a general Jira email, complete with links to the issue that was created. This "send email" feature doesn't allow for such things.
There is extensive documentation about automation rules, and many of the details (such as all possible smart values) are not shown in the rule editor. I recommend these sources to learn more about automation rules:
