Setting up advanced logging is highly recommended. See How to add advanced logging.


CLI actions require user credentials to access Atlassian servers.  Those credentials must be provided on the action, there isn't currently any way to avoid that even with Application links. Consider setting up an automation account for CLI automation use.


Actions like updateIssue and setFieldValue should not be used to update system fields if they reference the issue being transitioned. Instead, use post functions that are available for those specific functions directly. See JCLIP-19 for more information.
