Hi @Sneha Gole

welcome to Atlassian Community!

Unfortunately, it is not possible to use your own variables (based on custom fields' values in issue) in webhook's url.

But I can image another approach could work for you.

Do you have Jira server or cloud?

If you have Jira server, I would recommend you to use ScriptRunner add-on and create post function with groovy script, which will take the values from the issue and use them to create url and body of the request.

hiiiii @Hana Kučerová  I have remove custom fields i have just create transition with none screen selected.



 and i have set "  " url in webhook ..

when i check the log file its show like below

image.pngdoes it means  webhook  is sent from myside correctly ?

Hi @Sneha Gole ,

that looks good! Were you able to get the data in the other application?

No guessing may be its because of network policy 

The data in other application is not updated what should i do now?

Hi @Sneha Gole ,

did you try to check atlassian-jira.log? 

If the remote systen doesn't "catch" the webhook POST, there should be record about it.

hii @Hana Kučerová  No there is no such logs about it 

can you please tell  me how to post json data in webhook?


hii @Hana Kučerová  Can you please tell me how to post json data in webhook ? (i have API project on local machine and when i click on validate transition webhook gets call and get Plant and Partnumber  in api project but not getting josn after i debug)

Hi @Sneha Gole,

please check Exclude body parameter in configuration of the webhook in Jira administration. The checkbox should by unchecked.
