Automation to update new field on card creation Edited

Hello! We are looking to set up automation to update a field (project manager = myself) when specific initiatives are created along with updating the field on the child epics and stories. This would include if any epics or stories are created after the initial plan.

 

If we update the project manager on the initiative manually (in order to avoid needing a component of some sort), is there automation to automatically update the epics and stories? Perhaps if initiative pm field = myself, then update the field on epics and stories?

Hi Jade,

Yes you would need some type of indicator for those Initiatives. I would suggest adding a Component for that since they are easy to use in Automation and for Reporting. 

thank you. I just updated the question a bit.

Yes, you should be able to use Automation to identify the linked Epics. But you might need two different Rules - one when the initiative is updated to update the Epic. And then another one when the Epic is updated to update the Stories. But you can try that. 

So create a rule based on the Project Manager field being updated

Then add a condition if the issuetype = Initiative

Then add another condition for Related Issues and choose linked Issues.

Select the linked issues type you use for Initiatives to Epics.

Then add a New Action for Edit Issue

Select the Project Manager field and choose Copy from Trigger Issue

It will look something roughly like this:

Thank you - this worked! :)
