Workflow post functions are a fantastic automation tool that enable Jira admins worldwide to move on from mundane, manual tasks and get to work that matters.
But when it comes to issue changes outside of a workflow transition — whether a field update, issue comment, etc. — the automation magic vanishes.
JMWE now offers Event-based Actions on Jira server and data center, extending the same post-function power from workflows to an abundance of issue changes, including:
1. Synchronize issues: Keep subtask priority in line with changes to parent issue
2. Perform quick field calculations: Use existing field values to dynamically configure value of different field
3. Validate field changes: Check value of field calculation against requirements and show guided messages to users
