This major release ships with a new library that comes bundled with Jira Workflow Toolbox. The xApps Library is used to commonly provide expression parser features for JWT and several upcoming apps.

The first new member of the toolbox family using the library is Automation Toolbox for Jira, which unchains the power of the parser from its current workflow scope. 

Check out the rich set of functions and start automating your daily tasks in Jira today!

New features

  • Move issues on a transition using the Move issues post function

  • Added the xApps Library to use the Jira Workflow Toolbox Expression Parser in several upcoming apps
