Kindly have a look at how to transition an issue

if you have ScriptRunner then there is a built in function Fast track transition issue

If you have Power Scripts then you can use the autotransition function:

I am using ScriptRunner. I saw through above links..but in my case its not a transition actually..its just replicating the parent epic status. 


I tried something like this :


if (storyStatus == "Open") {
String epicKey = getFieldByName("Epic Link").getValue()
if (epicKey==null){
//Grab the parent epic issue
Issue epicIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(epicKey)

//Grab the linked epic status status
def epicStatus = epicIssue.getStatus().getName()

Is there any flaw here or anything that I am Missing

You can not just "set" a status, you must transition your issues through the workflow to the desired status.
