When doing CSV import to create Subtasks, is it possible to copy parent's summary?

Caleb Park March 27, 2024

I am trying to use "CSV Import" to create multiple subtasks under multiple parents.

For example,

1. Parent (Story) 1 (Summary: Kevin)

     -> Subtask A (Summary: Kevin - Subtask A)

     -> Subtask B (Summary: Kevin - Subtask B)

2. Parent (Story) 2 (Summary: Chris)

     -> Subtask A (Summary: Chris - Subtask A)

     -> Subtask B (Summary: Chris - Subtask B)

3. Parent (Story) 3 (Summary: Andy)

     -> Subtask A (Summary: Andy - Subtask A)

     -> Subtask B( Summary: Andy - Subtask B)


Those three Stories have already been created, and now I want to use CSV import functionality to create those 6 subtasks.

Is it possible to copy each parent's summary to the subtasks that will be imported by CSV?


For instance, in the automations, I know there is something like {{issue.summary}} to copy over the trigger issue's summary, but I am not sure how to do that in CSV import function.

Hello @Kyung Park 

There is no option to use variables or smart values within the content of the CSV file to insert data into the imported issues from other issues.

You could use an Automation rule to update the Summaries of the sub-tasks after they have been imported.
