In order to maintain the correct deadlines in a project it is crucial that all the deadlines are managed at one central issue and all the related issues have the same deadlines. At the start of the project the Due date of every related issue is a copy of the dates defined in the central = parent issue. But when the project leader changes the deadline of one of the project phases, the due date of that specific project phase and all it subtasks, should automatically change to this new date.
I have tried to build something using the standard automation rules but i don't find the right solution. Can somebody help me out here?
Many thanks on advance.
You'll need two rules for this because it is not possible to dynamically query for all linked issues and their sub-tasks in a single query. Here's a quick overview of the rules:
NOTE - For Rule #2 to trigger, you will need the Allow Rule Trigger checked:
Rule 2 is working fine.
Rule 1 is clearing the due dates of all the related issues.
For Rule 1 i need to be a bit more specific. In the parent issue we use several dates:
date PVE vrijgave
date Concept vrijgave
date R&D vrijgave
Each "vrijgave" is a related issue. So i need to make an automation rule for each related issue with the specific "date xxx vrijgave" as trigger.
If someone changes one or more dates this needs to change the due date of the specific "vrijgave".
