Creating an EPI link with ScriptRunner


I have a workflow that should create a default story for every new Epic that is created in a project.

I saw the post function in the workflow and thought i would use the built in script runner 'Clone issue and link'

The problem is that i couldnt find a way to link the new issue to the epic as an EPIC link

You should create you own custom post function instead. Check whether the issue is an Epic, create the Story using IssueService and link the issues together using IssueLinkManager.

Hi Timothy

The problem is that using the IssueLinkManager it creates regular links and not EPIC links

Unless there is something that i am missing
