Like the title states, I am trying to set up a Jira Automation to have child issues inherit its parents' epic link.
On my team, we have an additional issue type called "New Feature", which is the parent to a group of stories. An Epic is a parent to a group of New Features. Epic -> Features -> Stories.
I want to move a feature, and therefore, a group of stories, to under a new Epic (the team found that it fit better under a different bucket). So I changed the parent link of the feature to the new Epic, and I changed the epic link of the Feature, but the 55 stories that we have under the feature all still have the old epic link. Do I need to go one by one changing these epic links? Or is there a way to automate that when a parent epic link changes, so does all of its children?
Hi @Lea Casper - To make sure I understand this correctly, You have renamed the native "Epic" issue type to "Feature" and created a custom issue type called "Epic". Then you updated the issue type hierarchy so that Epic resides above Feature. If this is correct, you do not need to do anything with the child stories. If you change the parent link of the Feature, all of the children will dynamically follow it to the new Epic and this would be reflected on any Advanced Roadmap Plans
Ok - In that case, you'll need some type of business logic that automation can leverage to identify the relationship between the New Feature and corresponding stories. For example, let's say that all of the stories have been linked to the new feature as blockers. In this case, your automation rule would look something like this:
