I have Jira Cloud setup with a custom JQL filter for issues I want to see, however, I get a lot of notifications similar to above "Automation for Jira updated......".
Is there any way using the custom JQL to filter these out?
Ideally you'd want something to expose the user making the change to JQL. For the Automation for Jira addon, the user is addon_com.codebarrel.addons.automation. Exposing the user that initiated a transition or update in JQL is not native to Jira, but if it were ideally you'd tack something on to your existing JQL like:
(<your original JQL here>) AND updatingUser NOT IN (addon_com.codebarrel.addons.automation)
Searching through the marketplace, I found a Cloud app that looks like it might help out:
In their documentation, they list an UpdatedByUser function that looks like what we'd need to expose the correct info in JQL. With that app installed, your JQL might look like:
(<your original JQL here>) AND issue NOT IN updatedByUser("addon_com.codebarrel.addons.automation")
It doesn't look like there are plans to add the "updated by <user>" type functionality to JQL natively. There is an open feature request you can vote/watch to follow along with that suggestion though: JRACLOUD-1973
