Atlassian and Automation for Jira logos

Raise your hand if you’ve ever made a mistake while doing routine manual work. Or felt frustrated by the amount of mind-numbing “busy work” on your plate? Yeah, me too. That’s the trouble with doing things by hand.

That’s why we’re excited to announce today that we have acquired Code Barrel, makers of Automation for Jira. The Code Barrel team obsesses over customers, works as an open company, and values giving back to the community. We’re delighted to welcome them all to the Atlassian team and are confident they’ll fit right in and be able to continue building great features from day one.

Automation for Jira is sold exclusively through the Atlassian Marketplace and extends automation capabilities across the entire Jira family. It’s easy to use, even if you’re not familiar with coding or scripting. In fact, teams at more than 6,000 organizations already use it – from financial services firms like Visa to tech giants like Cisco to consumer companies like Airbnb and TripAdvisor.

Automation for Jira is a powerful no-code rules builder that makes automating routine operations a breeze. Imagine creating an issue and seeing its sub-tasks populated instantly. Or automatically linking two issues when one of them is mentioned inside the other. How about some automated onboarding and permissioning? These are just a tiny fraction of the possibilities. All together, Automation for Jira’s customers are running over 40 million automation rules that help them operate more efficiently.

Admins can also set up time-based rules that close out old, stale support tickets or bug reports with no activity. Plus, with dozens of built-in triggers and JQL support, you can retrieve multiple issues and set off a series of automated operations on the entire list. No matter what your rules do, your team will stay in the loop thanks to integrations with email and chat tools like Slack, Twilio, and Microsoft Teams.

By having computers do more of the time-consuming and error-prone work, teams can win back more of their most precious resource: time. We’re thrilled by the way Automation for Jira brings you more time to focus on deep, meaningful work and unleashes more of your team’s potential.
