Trigger when issue is linked Edited


I'm trying to create a rule which triggers when an issue is linked to another issue. Couldn't find a designated trigger for it - did I miss it, or would it require a webhook?



1 answer

In the meanwhile, tried to configure a webhook through Jira administration.

I'm having trouble accessing the issue that triggered the webhook.

I can't provide it through the webhook itself, because Jira seems to have a bug that causes variables in webhooks not to work (so I can't attach it as a query parameter).

I tried accessing it with JQL and smart values, but without success. Is that possible?

Hey Tal,


We haven't added support for Linked Issue triggers yet, but you can use Webhooks as you have suggested.


Though the incoming format s a little off so you may need to use JQL to retrieve the issue.

You should be able to do this with:

issue = {{webhookData.issueLink.sourceIssueId}}

Hope this helps.
