Automation rule not working on trigger label update if label is updated by another automation rule

Garn February 29, 2024


I'm working on two automation rules to flag SubTask C in the following case : 

- Task A

- Sub Task B with deliverable types = VisioIHM and status = done

- Sub Task C with deliverable types = SwDS DDU

For information, these subtasks are not subtask of the task A, but have a link "is child of" the task A. This is the relation link i'm using into my automation rule.


In my first rule, what I'm doing is when Status of Subtask B -> Done and my Subtask B has a Deliverable Types = VisioIHM, then I add a label on my Task A "Flagged". 

In my second rule, I'm checking when a Task has a new label "Flagged", if it has a subtask with a deliverable types "SwDS DDU", then I flag my subtask C "SwDS DDU" with a label "Flagged".


Both rules are working separately :

-If I add manually the label "Flagged" into my Task A, then my subtask C has the new label "Flagged".

-If I put my subtask B to done, then my task A is updated with the label.


My problem is when I try to used the two automation rules together without adding manually the label "Flagged" into my task A. If I put my subtask B to done, then my task A is updated with the label, but my Subtask C is not.


Audit log says it triggers the label update, but issue A is not matching the condition :

When I check on my issue A, I can find the right label updated by the automation 1:



Do you know why these 2 rules can't work together ?

Could you help me please?

Hi @Garn - By default rules will not daisy chain.  However, on your second rule you can navigate to Rule Details and at the bottom check the box next to:

Check to allow other rule actions to trigger this rule. Only enable this if you need this rule to execute in response to another rule.
