Syncing a field (when changed) from initiative to epics

Can this be done using automation for JIRA?

This can be resolved by this scheduled rule below. Here check if there are Epics, Stories, Tasks, Bug under initiative which does not contain fixVersion on Initiative. You could make it for Epics only also.



If you want not to use schedule rule but triger it by updating fixVersion on Initiative. Use this rule with JQL issuekey in childIssuesOf("{{triggerIssue.key}}") and issuetype != Sub-task :

Yes, it can be done, as long as you have a link between the initiative and the epics. You would then have a trigger that runs on issue change, and then use the branch rule/related issue component and Linked issues. Then use the action edit issue to copy the field value from the initiative.

@Mikael Sandberg is that the Parent Link or another link? I've not been able to figure out how to identify this Parent Link field from within automation for jira, do you have any tips? :)

The parent link would only look upwards, for example from story to epic or from subtask to story/task. In your case I would use one of the other links types. You can then use the related issues rule, and you could create your own parent/child link if needed.
