Hi, I've been working for Jira Automation at my company.
I just wonder how to move the task of Top level Epic to Subtask
My Project structure is same with below.
I made automation to create the task in Epic. But, I want to move some task to Story. But it didn't work. I just check the 'Given parent issue does not belong to appropriate hierarchy.' message.
Hi @김영동 -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
What problem are you trying to solve by doing this? That is, "why do this"? Knowing that may help the community to offer better suggestions.
Until we know that...
Using an automation rule to change an issue type is probably not a good idea. There are usually many differences between the types, and so Jira needs guidance from the user to decide those. This is why there is a specific menu function in Jira to change an issue type: Move.
Hi @김영동 , welcome to the community!
I understand from your question that the current 'Task' issue type is a child of the Epic (created from automation). Now, you want to move that 'Task' to another parent, but instead of Epic, the new parent is "Story" issue type?
Please note that "Task" and "Story" are the same standard issue level, so you can't establish the parent-child relationship between them.
Perhaps, you can consider transitioning the Task to Sub-Task first, then add the respective Story as parent?
Are you looking to change multiple issues? I found a knowledge base article that might be helpful: setup an automation rule to change the issue type based on a string added to the issue summary
If you just want to move a couple of tickets, you can change the issue type directly:
