I would like to increment the value of a custom field

I would like to increment the value of a custom field every time a certain status is transitioned. Can the Automation tool do this? Is there an example? thanks!

Hi Shawn,

You can do this by:

  1. Add a "Issue Transitioned" trigger
  2. Add a condition to check for the issue status. You can use either the JQL condition or the Compare Condition.
    1. For JQL simply run an jql like: status = Done
    2. For Compare Condition, use a value a like {{issue.status.name}} and compare against that.
  3. Then add an "Edit Issue" action
    1. In the advanced section use the following (substituting your custom field id)
      {
          "fields": {
              "customfield_10506": "{{#increment}}{{issue.fields.customfield_10506}}{{/increment}}"
          }
      }

This will increment the count of the field. Note. this will only work for text customfields and not number custom fields. (I'm still trying to figure out how to do that.

Cheers,

Nick
