I would like to create Epic issue with predefined children task issues automatically.
When Created Issue = Epic
Than Create Issues as children to the triggered issue:
Thank you for your help.
So I have a slightly different issue with this. I need to create an Epic and then create stories attached to the epic. But instead of the trigger being to create an issue, we need to have the trigger be a schedule. They are quarterly tasks that have to be done.
Any thoughts on this?
This last run, it created the Epic needed on the scheduled day/time. And it created the tasks needed. However, it didn't link the tasks to the created Epic.
Anyone know what I'm missing?
I have done something similar that I suspect might be the answer for you. I created an epic and an epic task on a manual trigger.
You can see I am creating an epic in one project and adding a task to the epic from a different project. I also send an email to the initiator to remind them to update the epic and child ticket. Hoping "Current Issue" resolves your problem in combination with the branch.
I have an Epic created on a schedule and then use the branch - "Most Recently Created New Issue" to create Tasks within it, using the "Epic Link" and Trigger Issue.
However, what I can't do is then create sub-tasks under some of those Tasks.
Creating sub-tasks off the current or trigger all come under the Epic directly, rather than the most recent Task.
I can't nest another branch within that branch either, and trying it from the root just links back to the original Epic.
@Luki I have tried both of the above and i am still not getting a positive result. We use kanban only right now and have a hierarchy of :
The child issues are issue types we created such as step 1, step 2 etc within our org's workflow. Bottom line, when i follow the above steps, no child issues are added, as if they are not even being made. I read some where that you need script runner for the cloud automation to work; is this true? do you guys all have script runner in your bundle as well to execute automation.
Thank you for any help; we are trying to vastly reduce our setup time for our projects
My tasks are within my Epic when I follow the steps above but when looking at the List view, each of my tasks are separate and not nested under my Epic. I feel like I have tried everything to try to put them under the Epic
> Goal: I can collapse and expand the Epic to see the Tasks in the List view
> Current Status: In the List view, the Epic and Task are not nested, so I cannot collapse or expand to get the associated tasks, (see picture - the expand arrow does not list anything underneath)
@Joao Borges Argh, No! - I have not been able to figure it out and it is driving me nuts to see all of my Epics AND tasks on my List View. As far as I know, it is not a capability yet but I could be wrong. Anyone who knows how to fix it and nest the tasks under the Epics, please let me know!!!
