Hey there Svyat,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to search on issues in a board at the moment.

You could try to use the same JQL as the board as a source of your trigger and then match the value of {{issues.size}} to match 0-9 and then send out an email. Something along the lines of:


Note that this will only work in server and you need the "Process all issues produced by this trigger in bulk" flag enabled on your JQL trigger.

Hope that helps!

Thank you for your answer, unfortunately we have a cloud version and option "Process all issues produced by this trigger in bulk" is not available there 


Is it still not possible to do so ?
I'm interested as well to have this kind of trigger when issues exceed a number on a specific status.


Thank you !
