New major feature: Event-based Actions
Use Event-based Actions to automate processes outside of Jira Workflows.
You can now trigger one or more JMWE post-functions to run when a change is made to an issue, such as fields being modified, an issue being updated, a comment being added, etc.
The following triggers are included in this release:
Issue Field Value Change
For example, when a user updates an issue or modifies certain fields, it can trigger post-functions to:
Synchronize issues, i.e., copy content from parent issue to child;
Validate field changes, i.e., check the value of fields against the requirement and show guided messages to users (View this how-to demo);
Perform calculations, i.e., instantly calculate the value of fields from other fields (View this how-to demo);
Visit our website or read this documentation page to learn more about Event-based Actions.
callRest filters now support an option to return errors as a return value instead of stopping the execution of the template and logging an error.
In workflow post-functions, the changes made to the issue by the user on the transition screen are now available to Nunjucks templates through the
context.changelog global variable.
In workflow post-functions, the comment input by the user on the transition screen are now available to Nunjucks templates through the
context.comment global variable.
The Build-your-own post-function now supports longer templates (scripts).
Insight custom fields are now supported in post-functions that set or copy field values.
The Satisfaction field of Jira Service Management is now available as a source field in post-functions that copy field values.
When creating multiple issues, the Create Issue(s) post-function will now continue iterating after encountering an error while creating an issue.
