Jira Cloud Automation - Linked Issue Trigger

Michael Smith April 14, 2023


I created an automation rule that will set the Priority of an issue to "Blocker" if an issue link is created of Blocked By or Blocks.

The way the trigger is designed (assuming you don't use smart values) is you click the link type  save and move on. 

If I create the link on Issue A, then the Reciprocal Issue B is the ticket that gets the Priority set to Blocker.

There is a description telling me to use smart values {{destinationIssue}}{{linkType}} in order to work with Issue A, however I can't find any examples on how to use these values. In this instance I want to update the priority on both of the issues so that they both hit a "High Priority" swim lane and get worked quickly.

The automation for this is fairly simple, it should look something like this:
