How can I setup a Automation rule only for PRs matching certain criteria?

I am trying to  create an Automation rules to transition linked Jira issue(s) to `Done` when a PR is merged.

Right now since there is no additional configuration for  "PR merged" trigger, my rule is running for every PR, but for my usecase I want this rule to trigger only or PRs matching certain criteria, e.g. when PR title has some keyword. How can I accomplish this?

Hi @Bharat Patel 

You can add a 'condition' 

Capture.PNG'Issue fields condition' will let you search for keywords in the summary.

Hope this helps, let me know if I've misinterpreted your question.

hi @Stuart C actually I want to define a condition based on PR title, e.g. PR title contains "#mergeit", not on JIRA issue fields.

Ah! Sorry Bharat,

I see what you're after now.

I haven't had chance to test this myself but I wanted put it out there whilst I look into it. 

I believe you can create a webhook in Bitbucket ( and use 'merged' from the pull request triggers.

Then use that incoming webhook as a trigger in the automation rule and for the condition you can use 'advanced compare condition' to specify {{webhookData.title}} > equals > #mergeit

I'll try and test this tonight but let me know if you confirm or deny this works before I do :)

hi @Stuart C 

Thanks for your reply and that suggestion, that would have worked perfectly only if Bitbucket webhook included JIRA issues in the webhook data :) 

I can get the automation to trigger conditionally via webhook approach, but problem now is it can't find the JIRA issues to act on.
