Understand the general concepts and best practices of automation in Atlassian cloud products.
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.
Before you begin
To manage project automations, you must have the appropriate project permissions:
Company-managed projects: You’ll need the Administer projects and Browse projects permissions for your project. Learn more about permissions for company-managed projects
Team-managed projects: You’ll need Administrator access for your project. Learn more about permissions for team-managed projects
To manage global automations, you’ll need the Administer Jira permission. Learn more about global permissions in Jira Cloud.
Connect your automation rule to GitHub
Go to Automation and select Create rule.
Select a trigger for your rule.
Select the Create branch in GitHub action.
Select Connect to begin connecting your rule to GitHub. A GitHub prompt will appear, asking you to grant authorization to Atlassian automation.
Select which GitHub organization you want to connect to.
For organization owners: Select Grant on the organization you want to authorize.
For organization members: Select Request on the organization you want to connect. This will send an email to the organization owner asking them to authorize on your behalf.
If you forget to hit Grant or Request, you can try again later by going to GitHub and selecting User Settings > Applications > Authorise Oauth Applications > Atlassian Automation
6. This will finish setting up the connection, and you’ll be able to continue configuring your rule. However, if you had to Request authorization, the Organization dropdown may not show the organization you’re looking for when you configure the action - if that’s the case, you’ll need to contact your GitHub organization owner and ask them to authorize Atlassian Automation.
