I need to create multiple issues and link with the current task on a workflow transition

I need to create multiple issues and link with the current task on a workflow transition.

We have a field "Applications" of type checkboxes. For each checkbox  checked, we want a new issue be created and linked to the current issue.

I configured it using automation, but only the first condition is getting checked , and not going to the next condition.

When issue transtioned

If list of applications contains any of <app_name>

Create issue in project and issuetype

Link issue to Trigger issue and link type.

 

The above 4 steps I repeated.

 

Regards,

Sateesh

Hi @Sateesh Chandra 

Would you please post an image of your rule?  That will help the community provide input.  Thanks!

Given you are creating multiple issues, I expect what you are seeing is that when the first condition is met, the rule does the "yes" condition and continues, otherwise it exits.

What you may want instead is to use branches to handle this, such as with:

  • Trigger: status transition
  • Branch: for current issue
    • Condition: if Applications contains your first task type (app 1)
      • Action: create the first task type
  • Branch: for current issue
    • Condition: if Applications contains your second task type (app 2)
      • Action: create the second task type
  • and so on...

The branching on the current issue will contain the test, and allow processing to continue.  Please note that these branches' processing occur asynchronously and so there is no guaranteed order in which the tasks will be created.

Best regards,

Bill
