What is the valid DevOps category of an automation for jira trigger?


automation-thirdparty-sample contains an example of a trigger. One comment in project-created-trigger.js says

* This is used for the search dropdown in the select action ui.
categories: [],

We would like to see our trigger among DevOps triggers during an automation rule creation. Unfortunately none of the values relates to DevOps drop-down option.

Question 1: Which one relates to DevOps?

Question 2: OR - probably better - can we create a new trigger category "My Category"?

Results of my experiments:

  • When I set categories: ['SCHEDULED','INTEGRATIONS'] then our trigger is displayed when  'Scheduled' or 'Integrations' is chosen.
  • But when I set categories: ['ISSUE_ACTIONS','SERVICE_DESK_ACTION','ISSUE_TRIGGERS','NOTIFICATIONS','SCHEDULED','INTEGRATIONS'] then our trigger is not displayed as 'DevOps' trigger.

@Daniel Ramotowski , I believe it's a piece of cake for you. Could you please advise the right category enum?

@Irina S , please try 'DEV_TRIGGERS' category
