Automation to make subtask block parent



I have been trying to figure out an automation that creates a blocking link between a subtask and the parent-story. 

So when a new subtask - of a specific type - is created, I want that the automation creates a blocking link between the child-subtask and the parent story. 


I guess that's somehow possible but I just can't figure it out. 


Thank you very much for your help!

Hi Paul,

You can't specify the type of link between the sub-task and the parent - it's jut a child. What is it that you are trying to block?
