Can I define a single automation rule to automate tasks in multiple projects with Automation for JIRA?

Andreas Knecht Community Champion Jan 03, 2017

Automation for JIRA allows project centric rules to be created easily, but is it possible to create a single rule that applies to multiple projects?  For example I'd like to send a Slack notification when an issue has been created by customers in certain projects...

So we just shipped support for global rules recently!  

Here's an example of how a global rule sending Slack notifications in certain projects could be configured:

  • Ensure the 'Project(s)' scope is set to 'Global'
  • Then we add a JQL Condition to only match certain projects we care about
  • And finally we use a Slack action to send a notification!

This sort of rule can be created by global administrators in the new "Automation rules" global admin section.  There's also a global audit log that shows rule executions globally and from all projects:
