Is there a way to automate epics so that if they do not have a parent initiative, they are automatically assigned? We will always only have one initiative per project, and want epics to be automatically assigned to that initiative in case that step is missed.
We have this so far, but we need a way to automate the initiative ID, rather than hard coding it like we have here, "CST-8"
Resources used so far:
Hi @Nikki Hylton - If you're looking to get the initiative dynamically, you could do something like this...
Just before your Edit Issues Action, add a Lookup Issues action
issueType = Initiative
For good measure, you probably want to make sure that there is only one Initiative so you could add an advanced condition of:
Replace CST-8 in your Edit issues action with this:
Hi @Mark Segall - thanks again for your help before! This worked perfectly within a project, but now we're trying to make a global rule across all projects. We have a global rule in place which is now searching for Initiative across all projects... so we'd like to modify it to lookup the Initiative in the same project where the issue (epic) is being created. Any ideas?
Does the single initiative for the project live within that project or in it's own project? Is there anything in the initiate that identify which project it belongs to? If the answer is yes to either of these questions you could use the lookup issues action to get the issue key for the initiative and then add it to the epic.
