How to find the epic using automation?




I created a scheduled automation to create an epic at the start of every month. I then created a 2nd automation to create tasks but i want to link these tasks to the epic. 


This is what I did but is incorrect as its not adding the epic name so its not linking this task to the epic that has just been created. 


Can you please suggest a better way to do this?



Error message when I look at the audit logs 



Thank you

Hi, @Hoc !

I`m not so good at automation so I can suggest you another solution. Business Process Manager add-on developed by my team. 

When the process is started, all steps that you have created starts according to the settings(e.g. by tasks). But the process transforms to the epic. Here's the example of our SaaSJet`s time log process control. First task is an epic and other connected issues are its steps.
