Auto updating linked issues when an epics fix/version is updated

Edited

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

Hi @Craig Buchanan 

Just to confirm:

  • You want to update the FixVersion for issues which are children of your Epic
  • This should happen either when the FixVersion is changed in your Epic or...
  • A new issue is moved into the Epic
  • The Epic and the children are in different projects

^ 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 :)

Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ 

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.

Cheers,

Mark C
