    Project admins can configure powerful automation rules with ease. Automation Lite for JIRA makes it incredibly simple to combine triggers, conditions and actions to handle even the most complex scenarios.

    Triggers are what start the execution of automation rules. You can either react to issue events in your JIRA instance or setup scheduled executions for those nagging reminders and monitoring of SLAs!

    We provide you with simple building blocks that you can combine in a lot of powerful ways. Need to set defaults for your issue fields on create - check! Running through the same checklists - add subtasks on create!

    Thank you so much. But I can't fully understand free version limitations. Where I can find detail information about this?

    Hi Eugene,

    Thanks for the kind review! The only difference between the free and paid version is that the free version is limited to 300 rule executions for your JIRA instance per calendar month. Other than that it is exactly the same as the paid version and has all the same awesome features!
