Suggestion: Action to stop execution and exit

In some scenarios, if a certain condition is met, I dont need to continue running the automation script


To circumvent this, I have to add that condition to all the script but will be much easier to have an Action called "Stop Script Execution" that simply exits and doesn't continue

Hello @Korayem ,

Automation for JIRA Support team member here!

I'll be discussing this with our development team and as soon as I got any updates, I'll let you know here!



Hey @Korayem ,

After discussing this with our dev team, we found that this would probably be tricky to implement.

Can you please give me an example of where the action could be better to have than a condition?

Thanks in advance!



@Victor Seger 

I have the same need. I can explain what my scenario is:

In the automation, I want to add a new sub-task to a Story when something else is triggered. However, I don't want it to be added if it already exists. so:

  • I loop through all the sub-tasks of a hardcoded Story
    • If the summary == {{issue.summary}}
      • I want to exit the execution
  • Not has been found from the previous loop, so I will add a sub-task

in the current JIRA design, I cannot prevent duplicated sub-task from creating.
