'Only include issues that have changed...' checkbox in Manual Trigger

Iñigo Ruiz March 15, 2024

I am creating automations in Jira Cloud for a Business Project where there are only two types of issues: Epics and one type of child issue.

To avoid having to manually assign and set the due date of the child issues of an epic one by one to the same person and date, I have created a simple automation which copies the Assignee, Due Date and Reviewer fields from an Epic to the child Issues (Manual Trigger).

This is the rule:

It works if I execute it just after creating the Epic and its child issues, but when some of the child issues have been edited (e.g. have some of these fields filled) it does not work.

When looking at the audit log, it says "no action perform", no action is performed and it says to uncheck the 'only include issues that have changed...' but I cannot find this option in the Manual Trigger config.

Why does the rule not work in this case?

Hello @Iñigo Ruiz 

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

Has the For Related Issues step always been set to Children, or has it ever been set to another option? Some of the other options for Related Issues do include that checkbox.

If it has been set to another type of related issue, are you sure the audit log entry you are viewing is from an execution while the Related Issues option in the rule was set to Children?

Hi @Trudy Claspill ,

Thanks for your answer.

It has always been set to Children! I have run the automation again now to make sure the audit log is the same, and it is:

I have also been testing with different issues/epics. I want it to run always, not depending on changes in the children issues and I am not able to achieve that.

Hi @Iñigo Ruiz 

Change to Sub-tasks as the related issue type on the Branch. If the box is checked, uncheck it - then change back to Children.

Publish the rule and then test and see if that works :)

Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ 

Thanks! That worked! :D

So weird that it remains checked although 'Branch rule / related issues' is set to Children!
