Could you please tell me if it's possible to do next:

Thank you,

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 !


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!
