Status Sync Between Epic and Initiative

Amanda Mason May 15, 2023

We have the following issue hierarchy: Initiative > Epic > Story. We link the Epic to the Initiative via the "Parent Link" field. 


I want to have automation created such that when the Epic moves to "In Progress"  status, the Initiative also moves to "In Progress" status. 


What's the best way to achieve this? The following rule isn't working for me.

Hi @Amanda Mason - You need a branch so that the rule knows when to dive into the Initiative.  You want something like this:

  • TRIGGER: Issue Transitioned (To In Progress)
  • CONDITION: Issue Type = Epic
    • Key = {{issue.Parent Link}}
    • CONDITION: Status != In Progress
    • ACTION: Transition Issue (To In Progress)

That's exactly what I needed! Many thanks!
