Inherit 'Component' from 'Test (Xray)' to 'Bug'


as at topic, I want to create a project automation rule that

Inherit 'Component' field from Test (Xray) to (Bug)



Let's assume that

  • (TS)  -Test scenario stored as 'Test (Xray)' with component (DNS)
  • (TE) - Test execution of (TS)
  • (BUG) - bug created from (TE)



The user creates (BUG) as a result of (TE).


After creation (BUG) has automatically created relation




Problem is that created rule


was even not triggered.


The rule is triggered.


  • If I create linkage manually (so not via Bug to Test Execution) - the rule is triggered and is making changes that I wanted:
    Inherit 'Component' from Test (Xray) to (Bug)
  • I have tried to change LInk types to All or trigger event to Create issue  - same problem

Check to allow other rule actions to trigger this rule. Only enable this if you need this rule to execute in response to another rule.
Check if that helps.

It has helped, thank You!
