Replicate status on cloned items in different projects

João André Amaro March 8, 2024

Hello,

I have two different projects: project A and project B.

When an issue in project A is assigned to me, I have an automation that clones it to project B - the automation also creates a link with each other, and sets the summary and description to be the same.

Is there a way to automate the transitioning of the the issue in project B when the issue in project A is transitioned?

Example:

  • issue in project A moved to "IN PROGRESS" -> issue in project A should be moved to "IN PROGRESS"
  • issue in project A moved to "CLOSED" -> issue in project A should be moved to "DONE"

Hi @João André Amaro ,

Do this example in Jira automation:

When: Issue transition (select the status of Project A)

Branch: For: Link issue (select link issue type you use)

Then: Transition to issue (select the status of Project B)

Hi @João André Amaro , welcome to the Community. Yes this is certainly possible. You would need a global or multi-project rule. There are a number of posts in the Community discussing this or similar use cases. Here is one that I found as an example - When-a-cloned-issue-has-status-updated-update-status-of-original .

basically, your rule would look like this...

  • trigger - issue transitioned
  • conditions - conditions to zero in on only those issues where you want to execute the action
  • branch - for linked issues of type xxx
  • Action - transition issue , copy from trigger

one thing to note is the requirement to have a shared workflow or an 'open' workflow using "All" transition. This is so that the transition will succeed.
