I've run into a weird problem with Automation. I'm trying to set a rule where, when a new Task, Sub-task or Story are created, the parent Epic's Assignee is automatically copied to a custom field (user picker type) in the newly created issue.
It works if we use the Create button, but not if we have the epic view open and create the Story from the list of associated issues in there.
This could be a timing issue with the Issue Created event getting raised before all the data (e.g. Epic Link) is available for reading.
If the audit log seems to indicate no parent, consider adding a Re-fetch action immediately after the trigger to re-load prior to accessing the parent. This will slow the rule a bit, but it will ensure the data is available.
