Hi @Jiří Janošek 

I am not following your use case well.. For automation rule-related questions, it can help to post an image of your rule details and the audit log for the execution.  That may provide context for the community to offer suggestions.  Thanks!

It seems like your scenario is:

  • WHEN an issue transitions
  • AND the trigger issue is a sub-task
  • AND its parent has another related sub-task
  • THEN change some link in the related sub-task

Is that what you are describing?  If not, please clarify a bit.

Best regards,


Hi @Bill Sheboy ,

this is a rule, but not correct, because the linked issue is not linked to a triggered subtask but on a user story. so this rule doesn't find any linked issue and i don't know how to do it to find it. maybe it's clearer now what I need to do.

Thank you.
