jira automation - convert issue into a subtask assigned to a task.

Gavin Rising Star Sep 01, 2022

I'd like to do the following:

  • convert an action item into a sub-task under a specific task.
    • I have the part of converting action item to sub-task

But how do you assign a converted sub-task under a task?

Hi @Gavin 

Assuming you're using the Edit Issue Action to change the issue type, you'll need to include the parent field as part of the edit.  If you're not able to select it from the available fields, you'll want to do it via json like this:

    "fields": {
        "parent": "PARENTKEY OR SMART VALUE"
