I was excited to see the new course Jira Automation released by Atlassian. Why?
Jira Automation is a 5-hour course build for Jira Cloud users who are familiar with Jira Cloud and want to improve their Cloud Classic projects with clever time-savers and integrations extending the out-of-the-box functionality to suit their needs.
There are seven modules supported by hand-on labs using Jira Cloud Classic projects. While there isn't a version of this course with Server labs, most of the content would still be helpful to those wanting to use the Automation for Jira app available in the Atlassian Marketplace for Server and Data Center.
From the simple building block format of When, If, Then (also known as the trigger, condition/s and action/s) automation rules can be simple or complex. Automation rules can apply to a single project or with Jira Premium can apply to multiple projects or globally to all projects. Automations can do all sorts of things including;
Obviously this is just a small sample of the types of things that can be automated using Jira Automation.
The course also covered the administration tools associated with automation including audit logs and rule lists at both project and global levels; performance insights, usage statistics and rule execution limits; options to manage rules though copying, importing, exporting; ability to transfer all references from one user to another when there are team changes, and automation permission controls.
During the course you have temporary access to a lab environment to apply your new knowledge but the fun does not end there. The Jira Automation Rule Playground is always available for you to safely view and edit a range of automation rules in a place that will not affect yours or anyone else's Jira instance.
An important note about rule executions
The rule executions are counted based on the number of times the rule is triggered not the number of times the conditions are met and an automated action takes place. There is a monthly limited depending on the product you use:
Jira Software Free and/or Jira Service Desk Free - 300 monthly rule executions
Jira Software Standard - 2000 monthly rule executions
Jira Software Premium and/or Jira Service Desk Premium - unlimited monthly rule executions
