Calculate issues by schedule and send notification


I am using Youtrack Workflow Editor to create Schedule Rule and I want to create rule that in certain time aggregates any issues parameter (for example issues number) from some filter and sends notifications to all users about this. Is it possible?

I find some example, but as I right understand it sends notification for each issue but i need to travel through all issues and make some calculates before send email:

Hello Alexander,

Unfortunetely, this is not available using Workflow.

You can implement this using REST API. Here is the method that you can use to get a number of issues.

For that, use "Login to YouTrack" method first ( ), then "Get a Number of Issues" method. You can create a simple shell script including these methods in it, and add it to schedule. It will be executed according cron's rule.

Thank you.

Okay, thanks. We have already used this approach, but I thought that may be it possible through the workflow editor. So if it not available we will continue using REST API.
