If/Else block for create and edit of a Jira issue


Hi Team,

We are planning to have an automation in JIRA as below:

When an issue is created and during creation itself the Epic is added - then we will assign the label "A"

Else the issue can be created first and then the Epic can be added (similar to 'edit issue' or 'update issue') and when this happens we will assign the label "A"

I am trying to achieve this within a single rule as I have to create 8 similar rules for different boards and not end up creating 16 rules in case if/else does not help out.

Hi Gayathri,

Have you created the rule already that you could share, and we could help troubleshoot? 

But it is going to be tough in a single rule because the triggers would be different. The first trigger you describe is on an Issue created trigger. The second one is on a Field Value change. So you couldn't do those in a single rule.
