How to automate statues changes between different issues?

Hello - I am looking to get some help with setup of an automation rule/s to handle linked issues with link statuses. 

 High-line Outline of my desired result:

  • WHEN Issue A status is changed to *Done*
    • Change Issue B statuses to *In progress*
    • Change Issue A *End date* to today's date
    • Change Issue B *start date* to today's date
    • Change Issue B *Due date* to today's date+7 days 
    • Change Issue C *Start date* to today's date+7 days
    • Change Issue C *Due date* to today's date+21 days


I have around 100 tasks that I want to apply the similar type of automation, any ideas on how can I do it? and hopefully in a scalable matter! 


I have found smart values for that apply for the dates but I do not know how to link between the tasks. In addition as I'm running epics that are very similar to each other they will include the same type of tasks I will need to find a way to apply the rules each time to the each epic as an individual (Issue A epic 1 effects only Issue B epic 1)


Thank you in advance for the help!!!

Hi @Leeor Meirovitz 

You have branching option when you are creating an automation rule, use this to select linked issues and you will have an automation scalability  easily ready.

For editing same issue just go with adding an action

Let me know if you have any query



Have Scriptrunner? If so, then there's a option generally for the linked issue updates

No, is there a tutorial for it?
