Use automation to move a subtask to an issue

dennish_dcsorg_com March 8, 2024

Have a business project setup and I have setup an issue as a "bucket" for other issues that need to be worked on at some point. If possible I'd like it if when a user looks at the subtask inside of an issue they could change a field setting and it would move the subtask out of the "bucket" issue to a regular issue. The subtask and the issues use the same workflow. I tried via automation and it's failing with:

(The issue type selected is invalid. (issuetype))

 

The rule is:
When valuer changes for (the field I picked in the subtask)

and issue type = sub-task

Then edit issue fields. Change issue type to task

Is there a way to automate moving a subtask to an issue in the same project?

Hi Dennish,

You can only do that with a Move function, and that function is not available with Automation. You must do a manual Move.

Hello @dennish_dcsorg_com 

It is not currently possible to use the Edit Issue action to edit the issue type of a Sub-task issue to convert it to a standard level issue.
