When I manually use the "Convert to Issue" function on a subtask to break it off from its parent issue, I'd like the new standalone issue to automatically link the former parent issue as a "relates to" link. Note: our workflows are set up so that the subtask>standalone issue also moves the issue into a new workflow within the same project. How should I set up this specific automation?
We don't trigger for when a subtask is converted. You can monitor when the parent link is changed using the field value changed trigger.
However please note this isn't 100% reliable. One instance where I couldn't get it working is when you move a subtask to a different parent and then convert it to an issue (I'm not sure if this is common for you?). It also triggers the automation so if you often change the parent of a subtask you might want to add a condition to prevent the linking action.
Hope that helps,
