I am using JIRA Cloud Version and I am trialling the Project Automation plugin to automatically create some issues when a new Epic is created. On these automatically created issues I want to set the Epic Link (to the key of the parent Epic) and the fixVersions (to the fixVersions of the parent Epic). I can set the former via the Additional Fields JSON snippet, but I can't find the syntax that will do the job for the fixVersions. Any help hugely appreciated!
I just implemented the ability to copy the original issues Fix Versions during Create issue. I added the option "Copy from source issue" that should do exactly what you are after.
Let me know how you go.
Many thanks for your quick reply. I tried the new option and unfortunately there seems to be a problem. The issues no longer get created because of an error. In the Audit Log I see:
Error creating issue Version id '10404' is not valid
I should add that the issues I am creating automatically are not in the same project as the source issue, which may have something to do with the error
BTW, I had been working around the limitation by adding a post function to my workflow to copy the fixVersions from the parent Epic, and adding a component in my automation rule to transition the newly created Epic to 'ToDo', thus firing the post function. It's a bit hacky but it works..
I've had a look and unfortunately it can't be done at this time. I've added an issue to track this as I think it is important to do - https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-74
The current problems include the format with which JIRA renders the sprint on the issue. It is some legacy format that is of no use. The other issue is that it is an array (And not a single value).
We should be able to solve both these issues when the above issue is looked at.
