I’m trying to automate the creation of several issues when a release is created in the release hub.
This is working as expected.
However, I’m also trying to set the Fix Version in the automatically created issues to the release version i have just created. This isn’t working?
The only option I seem to have in the automation rule is ‘Add Fix Version from Trigger Issue’ but the automation wasn’t triggered from an issue!?
Hi John, I think the issue is that the Automation was triggered from a create version event and not an issue event, and the action is to 'Add Fix version from Trigger Issue' as this is not a trigger issue, then i'm guessing the fix version isn't known? Was wondering if there was any other way of adding the new version to the tickets it's creating?
Hi @Paul Brown
Yes, and... to what John said: the newly created issue is the triggering issue. So try that and see if it works.
Occasionally the newly created issue is not fully available at the time the trigger fires, and so copied fields do not always populate. The work-around for that is to add an action to Re-fetch the issue immediately after the trigger; that will reload it before you use it as a copying source.
