Jira resources says the following about what counts as a rule execution:
Any time an event fires as a result of an automation rule you have enabled, it will count as a rule execution.
For example, if you have created a rule that fires whenever an issue transitions to Done, this will count as a rule execution. Even if the rule does not perform an action, as long as it has been triggered, it is considered an execution.
This doesn't make things clear. The first sentence seems to indicate that it is an execution when an event is fired from within a rule. The second and third sentences seems to say that anytime a rule is triggered, regardless of it is fires an event or not, it counts as an execution. If anything, it seems like 2 and 3 indicate that if a rule runs, and fires an event, then that counts as two executions.
Does anyone have any clarity on this?
Hi @Dib Oglesby ,
It counts as an execution if a rule was triggered. That's it. It doesn't matter whether this rule performed an action or not after it was triggered.
Here is a link to a similar question, that was answered by an Atlassian team member.
And yes, you are right, the explanation is not clear enough.
