Automation to Link all Issue type as Bug under a subtask

Hi There

I want to link all issue type as Bug under a subtask can this be done thru automation.

Hi @Dave,

Task and Bug are at the same level in the default Jira Issue hierarchy, e.g.

  • Epic
    • Story, Bug, Task
      • Sub-task

One approach is to create a custom link type for this - we call ours "contains <-> belongs to", e.g.,
(We chose those names so that the few upward "belongs to" links would show above the many downward "contains" links when you're looking at the issue details.)

Then you could link the Bugs to a Task so that the Bugs "belong to" the Task, and the Task "contains" the Bugs. We use the Structure by Tempo* app to view and work with our custom Jira Issue hierarchy. HTH,


*Full disclosure: I am a happy Structure by Tempo customer.

Hi @Dave in the interests of trying to understand the situation better so we can help:

  • What's the problem you're trying to solve?
  • Why do you want to link all the Bugs under a single Task?
  • What are you going to do with the Bugs once they're under this Task?
  • What are you going to do with the Task after all the Bugs are under it?

@Dave I'm sorry, but what do you mean by consolidate? I still don't understand what you are trying to achieve. 

@Kelly Arrey has provided great set of questions - would you please try to answer them?

Thank you.
