What are connections in Automation?

Connections allow your automation rules to make changes in other tools and products. By setting up a connection between your rule and another tool, you can configure your automation rule so that an event in Jira triggers something to happen in the other tool.

For example, you could set up a rule that triggers when an issue is created, which creates a corresponding feature flag in LaunchDarkly.

Changes made in other products will be seen as being made by the person who set up the connection. For example, if a rule creates a flag in LaunchDarkly, the person who set up the connection will also be listed as the flag creator in LaunchDarkly.

To learn more about how to set up a connection, see Connect your automation rule to another tool.
