Linking the Epics of Linked Stories

Curt Holley Community Leader Nov 12, 2020


I'm trying to create automation triggered by "Issue Linked" where it then goes off and creates the same link type between Epics (where Epic's exist for both stories) of those stories.

So far, I've got it able to link the Destination issues Epic to link back to the trigger issue, but that is linking back to the story  and depending which way the linking points, it can be back to the story that is in that Epic.

Any ideas on how I can get the two relevant epics linking?

Hey @Bill Sheboy 

I got it working this morning....was simpler than expected. See below:

Hi @Curt Holley 

Have you considered using a branch with some JQL to access the epics?

Perhaps pasting an image of the rule you have thus far, and note specifically what is not working, will help the community provide ideas.  Thanks!

Best regards,
