I am dealing with a strange limitation of JIRA automation. Here is the simple rule:
I try to reach the epic issue of a subtask by using a JQL branching. When using this on a "issue created" trigger, all works well. But when, in this case, I use it in a "issue deleted" trigger, here is what I get:
Error searching for related issues. This is most likely because the following issues don't have a related issue of the type you specified. Try narrowing your search to only include issues that contain links to related issues:
IPUFRA-220: "((key = IPUFRA-96) AND (key != IPUFRA-220)) AND (project in (10034))" - An issue with key 'IPUFRA-220' does not exist for field 'key'.
The JQL is not working because of the clause (key != IPUFRA-220) which seems to be added automatically. But for this trigger, this will always results in this error! This clause is not necessary. Any workaround with this?
Developer from Automation here, currently there is a limitation with our JQL branch that continues to add that issue protection when that issue would have been deleted. This is generally necessary to prevent the current issue being processed twice, but in combination with an issue deleted trigger this check should no longer be called.
I've raised a public improvement here to address this, but it's not currently in our roadmap so there's no ETA on a fix: https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-2067
Apologies for the inconvenience.
