Is it possible to have a delay between 2 components/steps of the automation?

The rule is triggered by creation of an epic. It is supposed to transition the epic and the underlying stories, but the problem is that the stories are not all created when the rule triggers (the epic and its stories are created by another outside process, with the epic being the first item created)

Hi @Tibi Duka-Kispal 

You can do two things.

  • Use a Branch rule/related issues: All created issue. This will ensure that further actions are applied once issue is created.
  • Use Jira REST API from Send web request action where you can can for a response before running further actions.

Or may be you can just redesign to run the rule on some other trigger like a transition may be?

I hope it helps.


I prefer to keep this all within Jira, not use REST APIs.

The branching with All created issues would not work because the trigger epic and issues are created by another process.

What I really need is the capability to just wait a few seconds.
