Automation on components


I'm relatively new to Jira Admin and not particularly technical.

I'm trying to use Automation so that if any of my Epics change or have a component assigned, all Issues and Subtask have the same component.

I've managed to create an automation that adds the component to the issue when it's created in an Epic.

What I can't seem to do is create automation for the subtasks of an issue.

Also if an Epic's component changes, I still want all the issues and subtasks in that epic to reflect the change, moving forward and in the Past.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Paul D_urso

Take a look at his video that keeps parents and subtasks updated on a fixed version change (rule 2). You just need to change it to components.

You may have to create a separate rule.




Many thanks Fabian.

I'll give this a go and let you know if it works.
