I have tried using the answers from other posts on this topic, but those solutions are not working.
I would like to use automation to copy the components of Epics to the children tickets (see below). However, the automation keeps updating the epic.
I have moved the issues type condition and still no luck.
When you want to edit an issue, automation use the scope at that location in the rule. In your image, you show a branch on the epic/parent and so that is what gets edited.
If you want the epic's components copied to its children, you could try this:
Thanks Bill for your response. This is helpful. Can you include a visual, as I believe i have tried this as well.
I have the JQL searching for open epics with specific components.
I then just need all tickets in those epics to copy the components from the epic. I still wasn't able to get it to work.
If you could include a visual that would help me.
thanks so much
Here you go, Holly...with some additional explanations about why it may not be working for you.

Not only did you save me from spending more time on this, but you also helped me look like a rockstar to my team.
I really can't thank you enough!
Hope that you have a good weekend.
My sincerest thanks,
First thing, as your question seems a bit different from this thread, I recommend creating a new question and then linking to this one for reference. That will get the most visibility so the community can help. Otherwise only the people following this thread will see it.
Next, components are configured at a project level, and so you could
The approach you select may depend upon your ability to purchase an addon, and how often you need this and other constraints (e.g. what happens when components change between projects).
Hello @Holly Schomann
Another solution would be to use an add-on.
I'm the Product Manager of Elements Copy & Sync, which lets you do just want your are requesting. You can copy the Components to the issues under the Epic when you create them, and keep them synchronised afterward.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have any question.
