Simple Automation Question

Hi Everyone,


I'm having difficulties starting this automation, looks like I was only able to create sub-tasks with a defined number but I need the following:


In Project 1:

  • When a user creates an Epic and custom field has at least 1 value selected
  • A task must be created within that epic.


For example:

Multiple Selection 

* Iaas

* Saas 

* Paas


- User selects Iaas and Saas,  2 tasks will be created under the parent Epic with Title "Iaas' for example according to the selection.




Thank you,

Hi @Christian Delgado 

You can do it with something like this:

  • TRIGGER: Issue Created
  • CONDITION: Issue Type = Epic
  • BRANCH (Advanced): {{issue.YOURCUSTOMFIELD}}
    • ACTION: Create Issue
      (Make sure to set the Epic Link to {{triggerIssue}})



This is what I have so far, this creates a task(s) within the Epic successfully, but it doesn't pull the name of the selection. 



TASK - Instead of TASK I want it the name to be Iaas

TASK - Instead of TASK I want it the name to be Paas

You should be able to apply {{test}} to the summary of the created task to get the current custom field value it is iterating against.

This worked perfectly, thank you so much!
