Create task in different project

If I have 2 projects 

- Developer Project

- Database Project


Can I change the status of task in first project and have it create task in second project

EG If in Developer Project I have a task that I change to  "Requires Review by DB Admin"

Is there a way to create an unassigned task in the Developer project  and have it shown in the Developer Project 

The above is just an example

Hi Craig,

You can create an automation rule in Automation for Jira. Create an Issue Transitioned rule for the move to In Progress.

Add any further conditions if needed.

Then add a new action for Create Issue. 

The rule should look something like:


Be sure in the details to limit it to just the Developer project. 

Thanks for that , the image really helped and made it a lot clearer

Hi @craigHannah ,

You can see how Automation rules are set up in the Automation library.

If you're having trouble setting up Automation and you're open to trying an app, you might find Elements Copy & Sync easier to configure.

The app allows you to set up recipes to copy or create new issues, and you can add them as a post-function so that when you transition your issue to the status "Needs Review" it will automatically create the new issue in the correct project. 

You might find this comparison of different options on how to trigger new issues in a different project useful.

Yes, it is possible

Hi @craigHannah

You can create global automations / rules, which allows you to create a rule that applies to multiple projects. 

Under rule details, you can change the scope of the rule to multiple projects and then add the two projects you want to create a rule in.

Hope that helps.


Thanks for reply

Tried doing that but doesnt seem to work

Another (simpler) way of describing what im trying to do ..

If I move a Developer Project task to "In Progress" Create a new task in Database Project
