I want to update the fix/version linked to my epic whenever the epic's fix/version is updated.
To complicate matters my epic and linked issues are in different projects.
I have tried creating a rule in the epic project that triggered based on an update to the fix/version but I can't get it to update the issues. Whenever the rule runs it is recording a successful run at the epic level i.e. tagging it with the same version that I just updated it to
P.s. I am using automation for jira
Just to confirm:
^ The last bullet point is a difficult issue - Versions are project-specific, so if the Epic is in one project and the issues in another - are these two separate Versions with the same name? Or does one Epic project version relate to a specific child-level version?
Also to run a rule where issues from another project are actioned, it'll need to be a global rule.
Let us know if the above is accurate, and I'll try to help provide a good rule option :)
Your understand is correct. The versions are cross project releases setup using Portfolio.
I suspect that my administrator has disabled global rules. So was even wondering if there was an option to do a scheduled rule that checks say on a weekly basis to make sure things remain in sync and setup a separate rule to deal with when an issue is created.
Any help you can give would be really appreciated
Hey there Craig,
I suspect that my administrator has disabled global rules
You're probably not seeing this option at the moment since only global admins can administer global / cross-project rules https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-1261
There are not too many workarounds at the moment apart from getting your global admin to create this rule for you.
