{{lookupissues.size}} for IF ELSE Automation not giving expected results

Hi Everyone!

Have been stumped with this one for several hours, any help is really appreciated.

I'm using {{lookupissues}} and {{lookupissues.size}} on a custom field to try and publish different messages (if/else) to slack based on if the jql returns 0 or anything greater than 0 but it's not working.

I've simplified the example as best I could but Attaching a screenshot that I think best outlines the problem I am facing.

Both tests are returning the Else even though you can see the 6:01pm run has an associated item.

Hi @Daniel Landino

Welcome to the community!

It's not clear what what you are trying to do with = 0d, but I'm assuming you want to capture tickets are due the same day.

You may want to use something like startofday() jql instead: 

Hey Thanks for the reply. Yes that's the aim of the 0d and I'll check the startofday function out for efficiency but it's not the issue here - that filter is already being used successfully for several other purposes.

The count of the lookupissues.size is the problem - it's not working properly in the advanced compare if stuff
