Can I make my sub-tasks propagated with a dynamic actor (i.e. based on the original issue creator)?

Jar Lady March 13, 2024

I have set an automation rule where once the user creates an epic, it will automatically create an issue. However, if anyone else tries to create an epic, the creator and reporter of automatically generated issue will still be the actor set for the automation rule. How can it be dynamic such that it follows the one who creates an epic and not the actor who trigger the automation rule? Jira software version is 8.20.10.

Hello @Jar Lady 

As part of the Create Issue action you need to edit the Reporter field to set it to the person who triggered the rule.

You can access the identity of the person who initiated the rule with the {{initiator}} smart value.
