How can I display a popup message in Automation? Edited

We want to track the status of resolution (development) issues as comments in the parent JSD issues.  In order to do this, we need to restrict on Solves/Solved link to one issue, and would like to use automation to track if more than one link has been created.  

If this user does attempt to link an extra resolution issue, we want to use automation to block the link and notify the user.  Neither a Slack channel notification or comment or email is an adequate notification: it really needs to a popup on the screen something like "Sorry, you can't have more than one link like that; your link has been removed".

So: how do you use automation to create a popup message.

Hi Mark - Just and FYI on Automation For Jira - it performs actions based other actions. But it cannot block or prevent users from performing actions. Those need to be done in the workflow using Conditions and/or Validators. 

I wasn't expecting a block of action, just a popup message.

I am not aware of anywhere in Automation For Jira where popups happen except for notification after and issue is updated by a rule.
