The Automation for Jira rule fails to complete due to the following error message:

1 2 3 Unexpected error executing rule: java.lang.ClassCastException: com.xpandit.jiraxporter.integration.automationforjira.XporterActionIntegration cannot be cast to com.codebarrel.automation.api.thirdparty.AutomationRuleComponent


During the execution of the rule, an incompatibility between the 3rd party plugin Xporter - Export issues from Jira and Automation for Jira prevents the rule to be concluded successfully.


This issue occurs due to a bug in the 3rd-party plugin Xporter - Export issues from Jira as documented in XPORTER-3358 - Xporter is not compatible with Automation for Jira Lite.


While a final solution is not yet delivered in XPORTER-3358 - Xporter is not compatible with Automation for Jira Lite, follow the workaround provided:


Module "Xporter Reporting" should be disabled while this bug is not fixed in order to use Xporter and Automation for Jira
