Transition Idea status based on linked Delivery issues status

Hi Jira Product Discovery team, we are getting adoption across my organization of this product and we are looking at implementing some automation. 

One of the automation we would like to implement: automatically trigger status transition in my Idea workflow based on status changed of linked Delivery issues. For instance, if my linked Epic transitions from "In Progress" to "In QA", I would like to update my Idea status to "Staging" (assuming those are existing status in my workflows).

I tried implementing that from Product Discovery directly, but it doesn't seem to be possible from the Product Discovery workflow. 

have also tried to create a Global Automation rule for Jira, but I was not able to find the "Idea" issue type.


Is this type of automation something currently possible? Or maybe planned on your roadmap?

Hi Florian, 

Are you able to share a screenshot of the automation flow you have tried to implement?


Hi Alex,

This is were I got blocked in the Global Automation rules. The Issue Type on Idea is not available:

@Florian Wahl perhaps a daft question - but is the scope in Rule Details set to All or filtered to the relevant project? I can configure the condition you are trying to on my environment, at least.

I'm not sure you actually need this condition anyway, as the only thing that uses the 'implements' issue link are ideas by default.

I'm going to try the same thing in a few weeks... so if we don't get an answer here and I figure it out, I'll let you know!
