Concatenate Values of Customized Fields of Sub Task into Parent Tickets Customized Field Edited


  I have one customized Field (Developed by) in SubTask , It is Selection List Type.

 Now, I want that a text Field in Parent Tickets (Developers)  manage automatically by Concatenate the values of Its "Developd By" Field of its all SubTask Tickets.

For Example :-

SubTask 1  having DevelopBy = "Amar"

SubTask 2  having DevelopBy = "Vishal"


Then Its Parent Ticket's Custom Field "Developers" should have value  "Amar,Vishal"

Please guide me how to achieve this ...

Hi @amar jeet singh sindal 

Yes, you can do this with automation rules in Jira.  To avoid collision problems building the string, you probably want to do this based upon a change to the sub-task.  And, handle the case of the person not already being in the list

For example:

  • Trigger: field changes for DevelopBy
  • Condition: issue type is Sub-Task
  • Condition: DevelopBy is not empty
  • Branch: parent of the Sub-Task
    • Condition: parent issue's Developers does not contain {{triggerIssue.DevelopBy.displayName}}  (note if DevelopBy is a text field rather than a user field, you may remove the displayName part)
    • Action: edit the parent issue's Developers to add the person: 
{{issue.Developers}}, {{triggerIssue.DevelopBy.displayName}}

To learn more about automation rules, please review these references and examples:
