We have an automation that creates a new linked story upon a particular status change. We link the new story to the original. How can we add the assignee of the original story to be a follower on the new one? We are stumped.
P.S. - We want to do this so that the person assigned to the original story gets notifications when the newly created linked story changes.
Okay... so here is this first simple automation that I am doing.
Basically, you check the business review box and we create a new story. I am trying to get the Assignee from the original story to be a watcher on the new one.
I see the Manage Watcher component. This leads me to two questions:
1. How to make sure the Manage Watcher applies to the new story, not the one where the business review checkbox was checked?
2. How do I identify the assignee in the original story and pass that user to the Manage Watchers component?
Thanks in advance for your help AND patience.
@Mark Berman we were all new at one point. Great job on your first try!
For this I would use a Branch rule for the Most Recently Created Issue at the end of what you have there. Then I would use a Smart Value to populate the watcher with the Assignee from the trigger issue in the Manage Watchers Action.
Mine would look something like this:
I'm curious to see if @Bill Sheboy would do it differently. Here's some more information on using Smart Values: https://support.atlassian.com/cloud-automation/docs/jira-smart-values-issues/
Let us know how it works for you!
@Mark Berman for a use-case our team has, we only want to notify the owner of the linked issue (or original issue) at certain times, not every update. For this we are looking for a change to an issue with the specific link type and then using a branch to comment on the original issue and mention the owner.
Here's what it looks like in practice:
