    Hi All,

    I think "no longer available" is not the correct phrasing here because it has never been available.

    Atlassian doesn't allow third-party integrations for Automation for Jira Cloud yet, but they are aware that it's important for many customers, and it will come in the future.

    So, it's not up to us when we can deliver it, and the best we all can do now is to vote and tell Atlassian to stop postponing this feature:

    @Vincenzo OK, got it, now I understand your use case better. And I agree, this feature would be the perfect solution for that.

    I Aron. In our case we have different project with different people involved also outside of the time which is working on jira. they not require to have a clear view of the boards and gadget but they want reports daily which shows the project sanity and task status. Now as now It's mandatory for us to print the dashboard to pdf (and this was already a great improvement) and send it daily to the different people for the different teams. Having a tool (Automation) capable of printing dashboard and (if possible) report with an auto sending option would decrease the amount of time we spend daily on that kind of activity and letting us be more focused on the core stuff and not the reporting.

    @Peter
    Unfortunately we cannot start working on this until Atlassian enables the third-party integrations in Jira Cloud.
    Please see Aron's note above at December 05, 2019 18:40.

    Important note: I wanted to mention that the pre-requisite for this feature is that Atlassian enables 3rd party (external) actions in their Automation for Jira Cloud and Automation for Jira - Cloud Lite apps. 

    I encourage everyone to ask for that feature at Atlassian. The more request they receive the sooner we can ship the solution on our end.

    Thanks!

    @Michel

    The links in Aron's comment are invalid becuase the Automation app was integrated into Jira Cloud and no longer available as a separate product.

    As Josh posted above, please vote and comment on this feature request at Atlassian:

    @Duke what does that mean "in Excel"?

    I mean, although the Cloud version is not available yet, the Server and Data Center versions provide the automation capability as part of automation rules implement with Automation for Jira. This is the standard no-code automation approach that runs "in Jira".

    So what are you precisely looking for?

    Please, make the creation of PDF automatic for Cloud too, in a way that you can decide even to put the attachment in one ticket to store it.

    @Aron I do not have a server version and I am not sure that would be the direction my company would like to go with any CRM/ERP system. 

    I would like to see that functionality that you mentioned in the cloud version. The ability to automatically send a PDF wouldn't really be a complete solution. 

    It would be nice if the functionality matched the server version.

    I would like to see this automation but I like to have the flexibility to have it in Excel. My customers would really appreciate it.

    count me in!  We are on Jira Server and we have literally dozens of automated excel and PDF reports being sent both daily and weekly.
    As we have no choice but to move to Jira Cloud we very much would like the 2 midori add-ons made available there.  I've added my vote to CLOUD-10966.

    i am jira admin and depend on the automation feature which is free is server version to help send to management the dashboard via email automatically on a schedule timing. Now its no longer available in cloud make me considering whether its a good idea to migrate into cloud .

    We work on Cloud, and automatic pdf generation is crucial to us, because we want to create PDFs based on info provided to Jira through a form and then send them to emails also provided through the same form. It is neccessary that this process is automated, because it will process literally thousands of requests, so we really, really need this feature.

    We have it installed on Jira Server and as part of our Migration to Jira Cloud it would be very helpful to have it there as well.

    As a JiraAdmin to me this ability to set automation is very important. The team were I work is screaming at me to build this automation to pull specific issuetypes when they resolve issues to pdf for tracking. This would be super helpful if this was released.

    @Josh I did vote, but are you sure that the CLOUD project is the best location for this request?

    The request is tied to the Automation apps, not to Atlassian Cloud, which is a more general scope - at least in my understanding.

    It would be really helpful to have daily report also with the weekly and monthly ones. Giving a clear view of the project in almost real time is a must

    Enrique, 

    It is the Better PDF Exporter app that is currently in open beta. We don't expect to keep the beta period for a long time. You can expect that the app will be offered with paid and supported subscriptions within some weeks max.

    About the automation component: there is no public release date yet, sorry.
