Hi Vanessa,

Try this: 

Change the branch to a simple Condition based on issue field. Use Issue Type = Sub-task

Then add a New Action for Edit Issue

Select Assignee, then click on Copy From Current Issue

Then click on the words Current Issue which will show a drop down. 

Select to copy from the Reporter field.

Hi @Vanessa Becker

just for a better understanding on my side. From opening post you I seem to have understood by creating a sub-task you want to set assignee = reporter but your Automation rule seems to show you want to copy the assignee from parent issue.

Which route do you want to go and is one of it working - or are you still stuck with implementation?

Thanks and best regards,

All sorted thank you
