Possible to compare to fields in Automation Rule?

I want to compare the "new supervisor" field with the "current supervisor" field to see if they're the same. If they're the same I want to circumvent a "New Supervisor Approval" step in the workflow, but I can't figure how to do this.

Hi Grayson,

Unfortunately one cannot do that in jql so one cannot do it in JSD Automation.   You can see if the new supervisor field is Empty?  Not sure if that helps.

Hi Grayson,

This is something you should be able to do with our app Automation for Jira:

We have a 'Compare condition' that can compare issue fields using smart-values (as well as JQL conditions). You could setup a rule like this:

  • Trigger: Issue edited?
  • Compare condition:
    • First value: {{issue.New Supervisor}}
    • Equals
    • Second value: {{issue.Current Supervisor}}
  • Action: Transition issue to some other workflow status


Thanks Andreas, that's really helpful.

But with that app an approval is not possible
