Automation for Jira - Show rich context for sub-tasks in rule list

We use Automation for Jira to add sub-tasks to newly created issues. The trouble I am having is some issues have a large number of sub-tasks that get created and it is very difficult to modify them without clicking into each one since they appear like this in the list:subtask-list-atlassian.png


As you can see, in the sidebar, it only shows that a new sub-task is created, not the summary or any other additional information. Is there any way to surface that info so it's easier to figure out which task is which? Is there another way I should be structuring my automations?

Hi @Ylan Muller 

Assuming you want to continue using Automation within the UI - not that I know of. The rule is accessible using the left-hand sidebar you've highlighted in your screenshot.

Not the ideal solution - but I'd recommend documenting important rules like this in Confluence, or a similar tool. That way it's easy in future to see which of the Actions is the one you need to edit from there.


Thanks for confirming, Stephen. This is what I was afraid of. We're documenting the rules, but it can be hard to locate a specific rule in the list even if we know what is there since it could have been re-ordered. 

Hi @Ylan Muller 

You could look for a feature request to vote for/watch in relation to this?

For example, AUTO-74 - or create your own feature request here from this page:


I'll vote for and watch the one you linked. Thank you!
