Not all processes or workflows can be kicked-off automatically. The Manual trigger allows you to manually execute a rule to perform common tasks. This is performed on the detail view of an issue.

You can restrict which groups can view and manually run the rule, when setting up this trigger.

To manually run a rule:

  1. Navigate to the issue you want to run the rule against.

  2. In the issue's Details panel, select Automation > Rule executions.

  3. Select a rule from the Run a manually triggered rule list, and click Run.

You can also see a history of rules that have run against the issue in this area.
