Can I use a newly created issue in smart-value completions in Automation for JIRA?

I'm creating a new issue using the "Create issue" action in Automation for JIRA and would like to use the new issue key in a SLACK notification. Is this possible?

The "Create Issue" action adds a new object to the inputs for subsequent actions, so it's possible to access this using smart-values.

The new issue with all its field is available via the {{createdIssue}} smart value.  If you are creating multiple issues, then there's also an {{createdIssues}} array that you can iterate over (createdIssue will simply be the first one).

So for example here's what your Slack notification body would look like:

New issue created with key {{createdIssue.key}}. Here's a link: <https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/{{createdIssue.key}}|{{createdIssue.key}}>

See our full list of components to see which ones support smart-values and in what fields.
