I am facing two issues when creating an issue. The first is when an issue is created, it automatically assigns a user. That user would then be added s a watcher which is not occurring. The second is when the watchers have been added to the issue, an email notification is sent to the watchers which is not happening as well. Are these not possible or am I setting up the automation incorrectly? Thanks. Attached is the rule setup.
Hi @Keith Vedol
It might be the rule isn't keeping up - as actions don't necessarily happen in order - you could try using the Re-fetch issue data action to slow down each section?
This worked for me...
^ Let us know if this works!
If not, could try multiple rules?
Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_,
Thanks for the response. The first part works correctly being that it adds the watcher after re-fetch. The issue remaining is sending the notification out to the watchers. I know JIRA automatically sends updates on tickets you are watching, just wondering why there is an issue here when it does indeed send those emails but not the ones setup in the rule. I have similar rules for update, comment, and transition and none send emails to the watcher list.
Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_
I found the customer email and it was going somewhere else. Interesting that if I run a similar rule on update/comment/transition I get a ton of emails as opposed to one. One other question, is there a way to send the initial email with a custom email rather than the Automation for JIRA one? I know you can change the reply though it would be nice to be able to change that as well.
Hi @Keith Vedol
I don't believe so - it looks like it's a current suggestion though, vote for/follow it here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/AUTO-76
You can customer the sender's name though:
