Changes to how automation rules are counted in Jira Cloud
From November 1, we are changing the way automation rules will be counted and billed in Jira Cloud. You'll be able to preview these changes in-product from October 1. To read more, check out our post on Atlassian Community.
Labels are key words or tags that you can add to rules to categorize, identify, and bookmark your automation rules. For example, you could assign the label notifications to all notification-based rules. You can then view all rules with that label, or search based on the label.
You can use the same label across both global and project/space rules.
Label a rule
Any user with permission to edit an automation rule can add labels to it.
To add a new label:
On the Automation page, click Add label.
Enter a name for your label, and choose a color.
Once a label has been added, drag and drop a rule on the label to apply it.
When viewing rule labels, an x appears alongside each label. Click the x to remove the label.
Once you’ve categorized your automation rules, you can select a label to specify which rules are displayed in the list.
See how we use labels in the public automation template library.
