Automation for Jira - How Detect when a SubTask is converted to an "Issue" (or Parent)

Is there a way to detect when a SubTask is converted to an "Story" (or Parent)?

There are several fields that we are setting at the SubTask level (including Original Estimate, Remaining Estimate, etc.) that we want to "clear out" when this state change occurs.  As once it occurs, the "Story" gets estimated using Story Points.

@Doug Levitt The issuetype field does not support history searches, so unfortunately you can not. 

History searches do not support the 'issuetype' field.

Hi @Doug Levitt 

You could try the filed value changed trigger and select parent link. This will run the automation whenever the parent is changed.

I'd recommend playing with it for a bit before implementing to make sure it's not clearing those values when it shouldn't (you could even comment those values on the ticket until your comfortable it's not running at the wrong time).

Hope this helps,
