Recurring issue does not send email when created.

I have setup a few recurring issues to:

1) Create the issue on a defined schedule and put it in my issues list.

2) Send an email when the issue is created.

My log tells me the issue was created (and it was), and it tells me:  "Successfully sent email for issues:"

What am I missing in my setup, or how can I best troubleshoot why the email does not seem to sending?

Hi Kyle,

Most likely your problem is that your send e-mail action needs to be on a 'related issues' branch for the created issues.

Here's an example:


The problem is that generally the main branch of an Automation rule refers to the issue that triggered the rule (if you're using an 'issue updated' trigger for example).  To refer to issues created by the rule, you need to use the 'Related issues' action.

Hope this makes sense!


Worked perfect.  Thank you so much!
