Lookup issues Automation (Parnet key = trigger issue key)

Hello, I have a question for automation "Lookup issues".


I want to lookup subtasks, which is the children of the triggers.

Is the JQL wrong? the result just shows the name of the parent, saying wrong JQL in the audit log.


Thank you.

Hi @박보은 

Can you try this {{triggerIssue}} instead of {{triggerissue}}?

Most likely it could be the capital "I" of the word issue.

Let me know!

I tried it, but It still doesn't work for me.

the audit log says, that "=" is unexpected in the Lookup issues JQL 

It worked for me when I changed the JQL to 

parent = {{triggerIssue.key}}


thank you!
