Run rule after linking with an epic

Hi team,


After the different changes related to the Parent link deprecation, I don't find a way to trigger a rule after linking a story with an epic. I have been checking the steps for Field value changed and Issue linked but it doesn't work anymore.


Do you know how it can be done?

Hi Jose,

I think you're basically running into this feature request:


Issue hierarchy is something that's being actively worked on, on the Jira Cloud side (to make the hierarchy more generic, able to support different types of hierarchies). Once that work is complete, then we'll be able to implement this feature request more easily. We'll keep you posted. 

For now you can try the work-around suggested on the issue above.


My work around i use is to set a schedule for daily runs in the morning and create a variable that i can than compare or use to check/act on the parent issue using the parent.key


I use this for my parent issuetype above Epic to be moved to a new status when the first "epic" (SAFe Feature) is moved to in progress.  Helps keep my relationships in order.

I run a branch rule with the following JQL to help act on the parent.

issuetype = initiative and issuekey = {{ParentLinkDetails}}
