Add rules to your next-gen board

Are you on the right help page?

The following information only applies to next-gen projects.

To check which type project you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:

  • If you see an icon stating You’re in a next-gen project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a next-gen project.

  • If you don't, you're in a classic project. Check out our classic project documentation.

Rules help you provide more structure to your work, or streamline your team's process. For example, with a rule, you can automatically update fields when you move issues across the columns on your board.

Currently, we have two rules available:

  • Automatically change an issue's assignee

  • Automatically update an issue field

Next-gen software projects are still growing in power and functionality; more rules are coming soon. Learn more about each rule and see examples of how they work.

You must have the administrator role in your project to add or edit rules on your next-gen board.
