creating unique epics with automation

Some of the things we do have the same epics in them, how do I set up automation to populate the epics and stories for projects that have the same work items? The big issue is how can I inherit some of the unique name from the trigger into the created epic name? example is trigger is creating a version with name 'PCBa Test 1'.   How do I get 'Test 1' into the tiles of the created epics?

Hi @David Siegler -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

If I understand your scenario, either you are trying to prevent duplication of epics (by finding existing ones) or you are trying to create new epics using information from existing things (such as a newly created version).

Both are possible, using smart value, text functions to extract from the other fields and take action.

To prevent duplication, the text expression could be used with JQL and conditions or Lookup Issues actions to detect the presence of an existing epic.

To reuse the text to create new epics, extract the text using functions to set as the new epic's summary.

Kind regards,
