How do I create multiple issues for an epic based on a multi-value field

I have a custom multi-valued field on my epic, let's call it "work-product type".

I want to create multiple stories, one for each type of work-product chosen.

Use case #1

  • user choses 1 work-product type, ie., 'analysis' --> we create one story called 'analysis'


Use case #2 :

  • user choses 3 work-product types
    • analysis
    • data set
    • new data source
  • We should create 3 stories under that epic, each one named after the above.


I can get use case #1 to work if I use the If: matches step in automation and say that "work-product type" MATCHES 'analysis'  AND the user only choses analysis.

However, if they chose more than that, then it creates 1 story but puts all of the values in the summary.

I can do multiple If:match queries for each value and create a value, but I need to only use the one value and not all of them.


Was hoping the smart people came up with a better solution!
