Jira Automation - Create Story with Sub-tasks


Is it possible to create automation like this: when scheduled (every Monday) create story with subtasks and link these subtasks to one other. 

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Hi @Mariam Jintcharadze 

An automation rule can run on a scheduled trigger, it can create an issue (e.g. story), and it can link issues to each other.

However if you mean after you create all of the sub-tasks to then link them all to each other, that might be challenging due to potential timing issues in rules.  You could try an advanced branch on the keys of the subtasks (after they are created), and then cross-link them to one another.

What problem are you trying to solve by linking the subtasks to each other?  Knowing that may help the community to offer suggestions.

Kind regards,
