Automation for Jira - When adding a new rule the logic defaults to AND how do i add IF ELSE logic?

When trying to create a new rule using a "user condition"

The logic only allows for AND statements, so all conditions must be true, but I need to be able to use IF, ELSE type statements in this automation. Will this work?


If not, what is the supported way of using this kind of logic structure?

Hi Anthony,

Sorry for the slow response on this.  We don't fully support this yet (see, but there is a workaround that works in a lot of cases.  

EDIT: This is now available - see


The If-Else block does not appear to be available within a branch. Disappointing.

@Trudy Claspill I was stuck with this too, but I did the if condition outside the branch stuff. In my case, it worked, I just changed my logic. 

Hi everybody, where are we with this feature? It is said it is implemented, but I can't see it.

Any updates on this? 

Seem this still not available using "If-Else" block in Branch, which surprising why it's not implemented what the harm to have this normal if/else conditions!


Anyway, question to @andreas  what is the workaround that works in a lot of cases you mentioned earlier?
