I'm currently migrating some rules from the old way of automating things in Jira to the new tool and I'm missing the "alert" (users to mention) action.
Guess I could be replicating this with a "add comment" but can anyone confirm the "alert" action is gone forever?
In March we received a mail from Atlassian "Powerful no-code automation now available natively in Jira Cloud!"
I finally have time to play with it (and start moving our automation tasks) but all I can say is that I have a ageing interface called "Automation" in project settings where the new automation is called "Project Automation":
The previous automation has an action called "Alert user" with a setting called "Users to mention" and one would just mention people to be warned with a message saying for instance: "This issue requires your attention. @John Funk"
Other question @John McKiernan
I'm trying to modify the value of a field but it doesn't appear in the dropdown list and I see "Not all fields are currently supported, please use the advanced section if your field do not appear in the list".
Where is this advanced section? Can't seem to find it.
Welcome to the new automation experience. I am with the automation team so should be able to help. The automation engine is awesome, the docs are not quite as good as they could be at the moment but we should soon have it fixed up so this is all more intuitive.
This should work to @mention someone. You would just change 'assignee' to 'reporter' or whatever you need it to be.
The advanced section is below your edit issue action
It also links off to the docs so you read more about it.
Hope that helps!
I would have loved to see a 1-1 mapping between old automation and the new one.
Because some conditions we are using on the old automation don't seem to exist anymore.
What's the best way/channel to ask questions? Cause I have a couple of them to migrate our automation.
Your best bet there is to probably document that in the description of the rule when you write it. That way it's clear what is going on instead of fully having to read the rule. I sometimes get lost in my own rules when I come back to them later if I have not left a good description hahaha.
