Automation for child based on Epic Priority and field in the Child

I want to create an automation that when a child issue transitions to a certain state, the priority is auto-calculated from 2 fields.

  • Priority of the Epic that is linked
  • Custom Field

In essence, it's a 2 dimensional look up. I'm fine creating it with if/then statements, but would rather something cleaner because there are 25 combinations. I've started building out the if/then tree, looking like this:

Hi @Nick Youngerman -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Without more details...I expect this can be done in a single statement without any if/else structures, using a mathematical expression wrapping conditional functions strung together repeatedly:

{{#=}} ( {{#if(equals(, "Highest")}} 100 {{/}} ) * (  {{#if(equals(, "Right Now")}} 100 {{/}} ) {{/}}

Please give it a try, and if you get stuck please post your criteria/formula and the community can offer suggestions.

Kind regards,
