Copy custom field from Epic to the newly created issue type through automation


How do I implement Jira automation to copy custom field value from epic to the newly creating any type of issue. I did try various way but not able to get the result,

One of them is to find epic link under Field value changed but I don't see the Epic link option. I have also attached screenshot for reference.


P.S : The field value I want to copy from epic is mandatory.

Please guide me.

Hi Gargi,

Try using the field Parent Link instead of Epic Link.
