The Utoolity team is pleased to present Automation with AWS 1.5 – this release adds a new action for the Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) to relay event data from Bamboo notifications, Jira workflow transitions, and Jira Service Desk automation rule executions via AWS so that they can be processed by other services.
You can now use the Send SQS Message action with all existing integrations for Bamboo, Jira, and Jira Service Desk.
- This release also addresses a breaking API/SPI change within Jira Service Desk 4 by providing separate artifacts for Jira 7.x and Jira 8.x compatibility.
Use the Send SQS Message action to relay event data
You can now use the Send SQS Message to relay event data from Bamboo notifications, Jira workflow transitions, and Jira Service Desk automation rule executions via the Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) for use in subsequent automation workflows. This allows you to decouple the capturing of event data from Jira Service Desk request approvals, Jira issue edits or Bamboo plan executions from the processing by other services:
SQS eliminates the complexity and overhead associated with managing and operating message oriented middleware, and empowers developers to focus on differentiating work. Using SQS, you can send, store, and receive messages between software components at any volume, without losing messages or requiring other services to be available. [...]
Automate your workflows in Jira 8 and Jira Service Desk 4
Most of the time we are able to retain Atlassian host product compatibility across major versions ('platform' versions in Atlassian lingo), but sometimes there are breaking changes that prevent that. While the Automate with AWS post function continued to work just fine in Jira 8, the Jira Service Desk 4 SPI changes required us to adjust the Automate with AWS then action in a backwards incompatible way. This release addresses the problem by providing separate artifacts for Jira 7.x and Jira 8.x compatibility.
