Trigger a rule when an Idea is linked

Dana Weinbaum August 17, 2023

Hi,

I'm trying to create a rule that:

When an Idea (in Product Discovery) is linked to an issue (Epic, Story... for now, I don't have a condition here). The link type is Implemented by

Then the labels of that linked issue (that Epic/story) will be copied to the Idea so they will be shown in the idea as well. 

In the Labels field of the rule I tried both "copy from trigger issue" and "copy from issue" (I'm a bit confused about which one I should use...), but it won't work.

 

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Almost there. You need to branch before you can copy information.

Select the appropriate related issue parameter:

The rule looks should look like this:

You could also do a re-fetch data just after the branch but looking at the use-case I don't think that's necessary.

Thanks! but it didn't work :-( 

And now there's a very strange thing that has happened - I can't find the link type 'implemented by' anymore in the Jira Product Discovery project (although I saw it last week...).

Hi @Dana Weinbaum

Implemented by is available on non Jira Product Discovery projects. Haven't seen it on the Product Discovery side. Are you sure you saw it there? This Automation rule can't delete link types. 

I have tried a different approach where I used an API call to target the issuelink, create a variable to catch the labels.

https://your-instance.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/issue/{{issue-key}}

This worked up till the moment where I wanted to edit the issue with the labels from the Epic. I got the following error: 

You can see the labels (RTLSD and pietjepuk) being grabbed.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to figure out why Labels isn't the same in Product Discovery as it is with other projects and thus couldn't edit the values in the Product Discovery items.

Thanks for trying. 

And strangely enough the Implemented by returned to the list of link options...
