Greetings!

I have a field which needs to get updated when a new task is created.

The format of the string inside the field needs to be  "YYYY-xxxx" Here YYYY is the current year and XXXX is the total issue count created for that year.(the counter needs to reset we hit a new year)

I have set up a rule to trigger this automation when an issue gets created, I'm having trouble with getting the exact smart values that I need to write

Any help or direction is greatly appreciated!!

Hello @Shriram Someshwar 

Can you share how are you getting the total issue count currently or is that the ask?

If thats the ask, to get this value, you can make a REST call using your JQL to below end point and it will give the total issues you can access using {{webhookResponse.body.total}}

 

sample end point: https://yourdomain,net/rest/api/2/search?jql=*yourJQL*

sample response:

{
    "expand": "schema,names",
    "startAt": 0,
    "maxResults": 50,
    "total": 6,
    "issues": [
        {  ....  } ]}
If you can make this call and log/capture this data, your final format is easy.
A little overview on how to make REST call:
  • Write your JQL in normal Jira UI.
Lets say it is: project = ABCD and created >=2024-01-01
  • Then you form the endpoint url using above reference:
  • Copy paste that in your browser and hit enter, it will return response and browser would have formatted the URL (replacing spaces with %20) which you can use in your rule.
After your trigger
New Action -> Send web request, use end point as above with formatted JQL.
Authentication -> Follow the steps here to supply basic auth headers for this call
Log {{webhookResponse.body.total}}

Hey, - Thank you for your inputs. I'll try and get back to you 

Currently this ask for a specific standalone project - so I guess I would using the Project Key to filter issues out
