Bulk change using smart values


I added an automation rule which adds the father's status to its subtasks using an automation rule for every transition.

The problem I have is that I need to update the subtasks which had been created previously to that rule. I'm trying to bulk change those issues using a smart value while editing, the smart value which worked fine in the automation is: {{}}, but it doesn't work while bulk changing I receive a string. 

Thanks in advance.

Can you show us the rule you have set up?

You should be able to affect all the sub-tasks that are associated to the issue at the time the rule runs, regardless of when the sub-task was created, using the Branch/Related Issues option.

Hey @Trudy Claspill 


My meaning is that I want this rule to auto change all the sub tasks which were created previously to that rule. My understanding is that only the sub tasks which are created after the rule will be affected by it and not the old one

Never mind it worked, Ty
