Automation for Jira: Reference a created Version


I have created a rule that allows my team to transition tasks and issues from staging into production and it will create a version with an auto generated date.  How do I reference that data to then have it put into the tasks fixVersion? 

The system doesn't know the version because it hasn't been created yet.  So I can't select it and have the automation just drop it in.  I tried a couple ways but nothing appears to work.  


If I tell the system to just go to the next release, it picks the wrong release (I have multiple releases going on at a time hence the date). 

I was hoping to use When: version created but I don't know how to get it to take that version created and use that value and add it to the fixVersion field. 

I was thinking about using another issue transitioned but then I couldn't get any components to work. 


Thank you in advance for any help!

Hey there Justin,

If you have a create version action, you can access your created version in subsequent rules using the version smart value

Hope that helps!

Hi Mark - Did you read the entire question? Seems like maybe not. 


I'm having this same conundrum. I tried doing a Version Created trigger that creates an issue, then setting the fixversion of that issue to be copied from the trigger issue. Seems like it should work but it doesn't. Maybe automation doesn't consider versions an "issue", therefore the trigger is invalid?

@Justin Koch did you ever figure out a solution? 

Unfortunately No, and my company is changing over from the cloud version to on prem.  So, I left the tool in the current state until that transition happens.
