When Made Assignee on Jira, Create a Trello Card

Alyssa Hill March 27, 2024



I am trying to create an automation on Trello that creates a card for me when I become the assignee to a task on Jira (Jira Work Management). 


I know I can link my Trello and Jira to manually create cards with Jira tickets attached, but I am looking for an automated way to do this. Anyone have any suggestions?


Essentially: (trigger) I am assigned a task on Jira -> (action) that Jira ticket gets added as a card to my Trello board.

Hello @Alyssa Hill 

This can be achieved using Jira Cloud's automation.

The automation would start when an assignee is set for a particular Issue type, followed by a condition that if the assignee is you, then send a Web Request action to POST a request to Trello's REST API to create a new card on a particular list of a particular board and set the card's name, description etc. with you as a member of the card. From that request response, get the ID of that new card and send a subsequent Web Request action to POST a request to Trello's REST API to add an attachment to that card in the format of a link to the Jira issue:


If your Trello has been properly linked to Jira, then it knows to change that 'plain' link to a Jira attachment type and display it properly on the card.

This is all a non-trivial task to do, so you will need to have a developer / programmer at your company who is familiar with Jira's automation and sending / receiving requests to and from REST APIs to create this for you.

Have fun.

Hi Alyssa, we don't have that functionality right now, but we will look into building something like this. Thanks for sharing your use-case. In the meantime, you could consider setting up an automation using Zapier or Unito
