Naming issues after EPIC

Søren Hansen March 7, 2024

Hi folks.

I've created a JIRA automation that generates a series of child issues every time an EPIC is created in a project. I would like the Summary of these issues to contain the name of their trigger issue, which is their EPIC/parent, followed by some text such as "Design" or "Procurement". I've tried inserting {{}}, but it's not working.

Hi @Søren Hansen 

For a question like this, please post an image of your complete automation rule, images of any relevant actions / conditions / branches, an image of the audit log details showing the rule execution, and explain what is not working as expected.  Those will provide context for the community to offer ideas.  Thanks!

Until we see those...

You describe the epic's creation is triggering the rule.  And so to use its summary you may use either of these values:

{{issue.Epic name}}

{{triggerIssue.Epic name}}


Please also note: the Epic Name field is essentially sunset, and now it is advised to use the Summary field instead.


Kind regards,
