Closing Admin account - Automation must carry on for others

I'm leaving a workspace and wnt to ensure all the automation I've set up is still going to be there when my acocunt closes and the other admin runs things.

1. If I set up the automation and my account is closed, will it still work or do I need to assign it to another admin first?

2. If I need to assign it - Where and How please?

1. If you are the owner of the rule, the rule should continue to run.  However, no one will be notified if the rule fails for example.  If you are the Rule Actor, then the rule will not execute anymore.

2. To update, head to the Global Automation page (or ask an admin).  In the "..." menu on the rule list you will find "Transfer User".  Here you can re-assign all of your rules to another person.



So our small business consist of only 3 members. 
I created the boards and set the automation rules. There is no admin to ask something of, should I have access to those setting you refer to? I cannot find anything like that?!

Apologies, on re-reading I realised you were probably asking about Trello's automation under butler, to which I don't know the answer.

I was referring to Jira's Automation.

Sorry, I couldn't be more help.
