Automation on Epic Link

I need to create automation in Jira for the following scenario.


Epic exists with label


Story/Bug is added to Epic (Epic Link Field on issue)

Label from Epic is added to Issue


So far I have tried using the following:

Field Value Changed (Epic Link not listed)

Field Value Changed - Parent Link

Issue Linked - Initiative/Epic


None of these trigger

Where can I try next?

Hi @Frank P Moley III 

Have you tried using the changelog entries to do this?  For example the following will catch when the epic link as been set to a new value.

  • Trigger: issue updated
  • Advanced compare condition:
    • First value: {{#changelog.epic link}}{{toString}}{{/}}
    • Condition: does not equal
    • Second value: empty (leave it blank)
  • Edit issue fields to make your changes from the parent


Best regards,


Thank you so much, this worked perfect.

The best i could think of is to execute the automation on any update. Something like:
