One or more trigger actions can be set for a named event in the workflow.

When the workflow trigger event occurs the trigger will check that any required conditions are met, and if met the "approve" action approves a named approval.


The trigger action "approve"causes an approved decision to occur for a named approval if the provided parameters are valid.

  • action (approve
  • approval (string) Name of the Approval to be approved. If not specified, default approval will be used
  • user (string) a single Atlassian userID of the approver

❗️ no mandatory parameter - only the approve action is required. If no named approval, the action uses the default approval in the workflow. 

	{"event": "on-change-state",
		{"final": true}
		{"action": "approve",
			"approval": "Sign-off",

(info) If adding the JSON trigger using workflow builder there is no need to include the opening "triggers": JSON markup notation, since it will be added by workflow builder.
