Hello, we're using the Jira Automation to create re-occuring tasks in our backlog, which are then fulfiled in an order by the dev team. Though I'm having issues to set this 2nd part of the automation.
I set the basic automation like this:
And it works fine, tested and all, but that leaves the assignee field empty. so I'm adding an additional action to follow this with:
I do select the group for the desired one and then after I click save, and the Automation gives an error like following:
and I'm kind of stuck, as first I dont even know where to put the JQL as theres no JQL field in any of my actions, and secondly the tasks doesnt exist yet. I saw an option of selecting the assignee within the `Create a New` action, but it doesnt serve the option to assign the task with the Round-robin option.
What am I missing, how could I automate this process.
Hey Jack, thanks for the reply, unfortunately getting the same error when trying to save the automation, it gives the error that assign issue requires issues. Somehow Jira doesnt understand to set the assignee to the issue it is meant to create.
This one works like a charm!
Thanks for the help Jack!
As you note I used the manual trigger. Can you try changing your trigger to manual and see if you get the same results? If it fails again I think you’ve got something else going on. Do you have any conditions around setting the assignee? Can you manually set the assignee?
