How to add parent's key to summary of a child?

Eric C March 21, 2024


In our daily talks, we refer quite a lot to that "ABCDE-45678" ticket, and that "GHJKL-87654" ticket.

It would help us a lot to have the parent's Key at the start of a Child's summary, eg "ABCDE-45678, do this and that".

I've managed with an automation that is adding - at creation - that Key to the summary, but can't figure out 1) how to keep?/add?/concatenate? ...the original text "do this and that" and 2) add extra ", " in between. Any suggestion? Or a better solution, than automation?

Final result should look like
{{issue.parent.key}} + ", " + {{issue.summary}}

Hi @Eric C 

The correct syntax is:

{{issue.parent.key}}, {{issue.summary}}

You can use this directly.

You don't need to add  + " "+
