Can I use a newly created issue in smart-value completions in Automation for JIRA?

andreas Community Leader Sep 19, 2016

I'm creating a new issue using the "Create issue" action in Automation for JIRA and would like to use the new issue key in a SLACK notification. Is this possible?

The "Create Issue" action adds a new object to the inputs for subsequent actions, so it's possible to access this using smart-values.

The new issue with all its field is available via the {{createdIssue}} smart value.  If you are creating multiple issues, then there's also an {{createdIssues}} array that you can iterate over (createdIssue will simply be the first one).

So for example here's what your Slack notification body would look like:

New issue created with key {{createdIssue.key}}. Here's a link: <{{createdIssue.key}}|{{createdIssue.key}}>

See our full list of components to see which ones support smart-values and in what fields.

This comment helped bring my hours of research to an end. Huge thank you!

Please advise how to select the last one from multiple issues, then there's also an {{createdIssues}} array 

something like {{lastcreatedIssue}}
