We have a Lead Generation Project in JIRA that we use to track software projects as they move through the pipeline. Each issue that moves through the board represents the 'brief' and references to everything across our business - especially finance. The issue in this project has a system field that allows a 'destination project' to be selected. Sales and Project Managers live here.
We manage the execution of that work in separate projects. We use Epics in the roadmap to map back to the issue in the Lead Generation Project. And Project Managers, Developers and QA live here.
When an issue transitions in the Lead Generation Project to a certain status I need to create an epic in the 'destination project' based on the data provided in the Lead Generation Issue. This technically authorizes a small development project to start and have the ability to log time.
Doing this manually is error prone, and allows people to work outside of the business procedures.
Everything I can see in Automation allows me to pre-define the destination project, but since we have a lot of activity that requires everything to be kept separate due to conflicts, it needs to be driven by the data the issue has - the user selected destination project.
Is this possible?
PS. Trying to avoid a plug in and additional cost at the same time :)
