I have an issue type in one project called "Approval" that transitions from Open to Awaiting Approval.
There is a related linked issue type called "Planning" in another project.
I want the Planning issue to transition to "Awaiting Approval (WPA)" when the Approval is transitioned to "Awaiting Approval".
The workflow for both issue types has the correct transitions setup and I have created a global automation rule (image attached). The rule works if I change the transition component to something else (like add a comment) but the transition component doesn't seem to work, no matter what I try.
Thank you in advance.
Sorry this isn't working as expected. What does the audit log show when this rule executes (with 'show more' expanded)? Can you post a screenshot of that please.
Also can you verify that the user you set as the rule actor in 'Rule details' has the right permissions to perform the workflow transition for the linked issue (there could be workflow conditions preventing the actor from transitioning the linked issue)?
Hi Andreas - thank you for your response. Yes, the user set as the actor has the right permissions (and succesfully executies other automations as well).
I have attached a screenshot of the error as well as a screenshot of the workflow showing no conditions on the desired transition.
Ok that's pretty strange. 'FAILURE' generally indicates a bug in the code somewhere.

Can you raise a support request please via https://codebarrel.io/support and include your server logs (https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/where-are-the-application-server-logs-16121981.html). There should be an automation related exception that we need to take a look at.
