Update a field with the date of the first transitioned story of a parent Edited


I am looking to enable automation that will update a custom field on a parent issue with the date that the first linked child at the story level is transitioned from To Do to In Progress. 

I.E When the first STORY of an Epic that is linked to an Initiative is moved from To Do to In Progress. The custom field I want to update is on the initiative with {{now}}

Hi @anneliese.kalwy ,

hopefully I understand it right...

I would do something like:

WHEN: Issue transitioned from To Do to In Progress

IF: Issue Type equals Story

For Parent:

- if "date field" is EMPTY

- update "date field" to now

Thank you Hana yes I believe this is what I'm after!
