How to use automation to create multiple issues.

Steve Morales April 24, 2024

Hi Everyone,

We just did a major migration and ended up having hundreds of issues that need to be created for vulnerabilities. Does anyone know how to use automation to create multiple tickets instead of going through each one of them and physically clicking on the "create issue" action? I have tried creating a rule, but I think the rule only applies to new issues coming after the rule was created. Thanks for the help!

Hi @Steve Morales ,

 

It is possible to create multiple issues through automation but there's needs to be trigger for each issue to create. The trigger could be schedule job, manual trigger, trigger by an issue update. There's multiple options to choose from.  If you have a list of issues in a CSV, it might be simpler just to import your issues into a project.

Thank you for your quick response. The list of issues are actually already in JIRA. We have an integration between our scanning tool and JIRA. So within JIRA, I can see them already but the main problem is that I have to click on each vulnerability individually and click on "create issues" if that makes sense.

Not sure what you mean by the need of create issue within a Jira ticket. What does the  create issue button do when selected. Does it create a set of certain issue types?

Based on what you mention,  you may want to run a scheduler to run through a list of jira tickets by on JQL, and set a certain action like create issue.

So we have an integration with Snyk. Within Snyk whenever a vulnerability is detected, the ability to create a ticket will appear within JIRA. We cannot import a CSV file because everything is already viewable withing JIRA. Here is an example of the integration view. This is not our actual company view. I found this in the Snyk website.

Hi @Steve Morales

Have you tried creating the Jira issues via CSV import?

Creating the Jira issues via CSV would make more sense if you have the data ready to be created in bulk.

Thank you.
