JIRA AUTOMATION - Link an issue to the trigger issue (but its more complicated than that!)

I have project A and Project B.

When a ticket in project A is transitioned to a specific state i would like an issue created in Project B and then this issue issuelinked to the very first trigger issue in Project A.

This sounds simple but putting an "issue links action" after the create action only tries to link the newly created issue in Project B to itself. I did also try "additional fields" JSON but alas this did not work either.

Any help greatly received :)

Hi @Darren.Fairweather and welcome to the Community!

Before creating the link, add a branch to your automation rule to ensure that you are creating a link from the newly created issue to the trigger issue. Your rule would look somewhat like this:

Also, make sure that the rule's scope is set to at least both projects involved (Project A and Project B).

Hope this helps!
