I want to keep few sub-tasks names same under a parent-task. Not same as parent task, but different title than parent task. Also, not all sub-tasks should have same exact title.
I have ScriptRunner Server version. I am using JIRA 8.5.1 Server version.
I am a newbie in coding. Hence, I would need query which I can run using ScriptRunner console or wherever in JIRA.
Example: A parent task has 50 sub-tasks. Out of these 50 sub-tasks, the query should allow me to mention comma separated IDs of sub-tasks for which I want to keep title as "Test-123".
The query should only impact title of the sub-tasks mentioned in the query and rest sub-tasks titles should be intact.
How can I achieve this?
I am not sure what you are trying to do here.
Sub-tasks have a single parent issue, they are a part of that one issue. It's nonsense to pretend that they are a part of two separate issues. So there's no logical way to do what you describe.
Hi @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ All I want is few of the sub-tasks to have same titles (not necessarily same as parent one). I am not saying sub-tasks are part of two separate issues (or parent tasks).
As mentioned in my example, the parent task will be same, but in that parent task, I want several sub-tasks having same title. I hope this clarifies.
Thank you for clarifying that, but you have lead me to needing another one.
Are you asking about how you might use Scriptrunner to create sub-tasks (with the same summary), or how to use JQL to find them?
If it's a scripted create, I base all of mine on the script at https://library.adaptavist.com/entity/create-a-sub-task-when-the-parent-issue-has-a-specific-label.
If it's "how do I search", we're going to need a more detailed explanation of what you want to search for.
Thank you @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_
It is not scripted create. Assume that the parent task already has so many sub-tasks created. Now, among those sub-tasks, I want several sub-tasks to have same title.
So, I want know how can I use ScriptRunner to have these sub-tasks having same title (remember, not all sub-tasks under that parent task, but only the selected IDs that I might type in query)
I am sorry, but that does not help. You've said "I don't want to create new sub-tasks" and then on the next line said "I want to create sub-tasks with the same summary as existing ones".
Could you explain what you are actually trying to do here? What, physically should happen if you run a script to do something?
As I mentioned in above comment, "Assume that the parent task already has so many sub-tasks created." Now, among those sub-tasks, I want several sub-tasks to have same title.
Physically when I run the query, the sub-task IDs that I would mention in query should get new title/summary as I would mention in query. But not all sub-tasks under that parent task. E.g. A parent task has 50 Sub-tasks say ABC-2 to ABC-51. Parent task ID is ABC-1. Now, by default the sub-tasks ABC-2 to ABC-51 will have same title/summary as ABC-1. Consider I want to rename sub-tasks ABC-11 to ABC-26 to have a different title/summary through query than the default parent task title/summary which other sub-tasks have. The query will not rename other sub-tasks title/summary which are not mentioned in the query.
I hope this clarifies further.
Thanks @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ ,
I remember ScriptRunner did give me a query (which I regularly use) that can rename (change title/summary) all sub-tasks under a parent task. But that is all sub-tasks, not only selected few sub-tasks under a parent task.
I was trying to eliminate manually changing several sub-tasks names (summary/title) under a parent task. And this I have to do multiple times in a week. Fact is we have so many parent tasks for which I have to rename their respective sub-tasks title/summary and it is a repetitive process.
Since, SriptRunner gave me a query earlier which could rename/change title/ summary of all sub-tasks under a parent task, I thought there can be a query to rename few sub-tasks of choice under a parent task by keeping other sub-tasks title/summary unchanged.
