Epic link automation when summary of a issue contains "epic name"

Hello, I have   a question about epic-link automation.


I want to make an automation, that

ISSUE link to Epic automatically, when the issue contains the "epic name".


I don't want to state specific keyword or epic name in the automation rule.

I want to make the rule that works with whatever the  epic name is.


Thank you. 


Epic Name: ANIMAL

issue name: ANIMAL-DOG


--> then link the issue with "ANIMAL" epic


Epic Name: AWW

issue name:  AWW- 235456

                    AWW- WJDKFLS

                    AWW- 41845

--> then link the issue with "AWW" epic

I think you could do this using smart values to get the values of the Epic Name and the Issue Summary, and advanced comparison conditions mentioned here.

Hi @박보은 

Adding to what @Trudy Claspill suggests, you will need to perform this in a few steps:

  • Trigger fires capturing the issue
  • Confirm the issue is not an epic
  • Use JQL and a Lookup Issues action to find the epic
  • Confirm an epic was found
  • Edit the original trigger issue to set the Epic Link to the one found with Lookup Issues

Best regards,

Hi @박보은  

a bit easier solution is to use a custom JQL function ,I recommend to use JQL Search Extensions. It's a professional paid indexing service provided by a company I've partnered with.

You can use the following query to get the list of all issues that contain the text in the summary or description and for more reference  

issue in exactTextMatch("Epic Name")
