Automation for Jira: Only run a rule when issue is managed by a specific workflow?

I'd like to use Automation for Jira to make automatic changes to a Story when it transitions, but only when the story is being managed by a specific workflow.


Is this possible?

Hi Gabriel,

So JIRA issues don't really tell you which exact workflow they are part of, they just tell you which Status they are in.

So you could setup an Automation rule, that is triggered by 'Issue transitioned' and then use a JQL condition (see ) for example with some JQL like:

type = Story and status = "My fancy workflow status"

Not sure if that's good enough to solve your specific use-case here.
