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!
