How to set the summary of linked issue to a text custom field within the other linked issue?

שגיא גואטה August 2, 2023

Hello,

 

I want make automation that will fill a text custom field with the summary information of it's linked issue.

 

for instance:

I have Initiative name: Initiative 1

and it's linked to an Epic, for instance by linked issue type: Epic of initiative.

 

I want that "Initiative 1" will be filled at "Parent Name" custom field within the Epic.

 

I tried using on the action item in setting:

{{issue.issuelinks.first.inwardIssue.summary}}

 

but it didn't work at all. Do you have any other suggestion? does it possibleimage.png

Hi @שגיא גואטה 

You should be able to do this without a smart value when the issue link is added from the Initiative level, not the Epic:

  • Trigger: Issue Linked
  • Condition: Issue Fields Condition
    • Field = Issue Type
    • Condition = equals
    • Value = Initiative
  • Branch: Related Issues
    • Type = Linked Issues
    • Link Type = <link type> - the link type from Initiative to Epic
      • Branch-Action: Edit Issue
        • Field = Parent Name
          • COPY - access this option via the breadcrumbs (3-dots icon) next to the field
            • Issue to copy value from = Trigger Issue
            • Field to copy value from = Summary

---

If it's the opposite way around, and the Epic is where the link is added, there shouldn't be a need for the Branch as the action is happening to the trigger issue:

  • Trigger: Issue Linked
  • Condition: Issue Fields Condition
    • Field = Issue Type
    • Condition = equals
    • Value = Epic
  • Action: Edit Issue
    • Field = Parent Name
      • Value = {{issue.issuelinks.first.inwardIssue.Summary}}

---

Let us know if these work for you!
