I've created a workflow that *was* working, but then I began receiving the following message in the Audit despite the Automation showing a Status of Success:
Jira was slow to respond. Automation attempted to delete an issue, but the results of the operation are unknown. Most likely it succeeded.
I have no idea why this began showing up in the Audit, but ever since it did none of the issues that were supposed to be deleted were successfully deleted. I'm hoping to delete 10 subtasks, but zero are deleted.
Why don't you just transition the sub-tasks to another status instead of deleting them? Maybe like Done if they are Done or Discarded or something like that?
But also, why are you completing a Story and then moving it back to Done with all new Sub-tasks? Why not just close the Story and clone or create a new story with new sub-tasks?
And just as a side note, it' usually not good practice to delete ANY issue. Especially one that has been worked on, and possibly completed.
I originally planned on going the Clone route, but I was unable to update the Status of the Subtasks in my automation....so I went the Delete route.
After seeing your comment, I revisited my original Clone method and finally figured it out. The solution was to create a second workflow to modify the status of the subtasks created in my Clone automation. It seems like I should be able to both create and modify status in the same automation, but after working w the Jira support team a second workflow was the best we could do.
No, the overview of the workflow is:
All steps work every time except Delete. I've even moved Delete up and down in the process to see if ordering makes any difference.
The part that's driving me crazy is that this process worked for about a week or two before it began to fail....
