Send bulk E-Mail Summaries with automation

Edited

Hi there, 

I need a little bit help with the automation Plugin. I want to send a List of issues from a JQL statement to a recipient group, but all I'm ending up with are X seperate E-Mails, all with one single issue. 

To minimize the e-mail flodding, I just want to send one single mail with all issues in there. 

 

Is that possible? 

cheers chris

Hi there Christopher,

Are you using the Cloud or the Server version? If you're in server, there's a checkbox under the trigger that allows you to "Process issues in bulk". If you check that, the email action will process issues in the one go.

That way in your email action, you can use HTML templates to list through the issues. The syntax for work with lists is at https://docs.automationforjira.com/working-with-issue-data/multi-value-fields.html#examples:

<table>
{{#issues}}
<tr>
   <td>{{issuetype.name}}</td> 
   <td><a href="{{issueUrl}}">{{key}}</a></td>
   <td>{{summary}}</td>
<tr>
{{/}}
</table>

If you're on Cloud, this isn't currently possible and the issue is being tracked at https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-888

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Mark C
