Adding parent issue data to the sub-task

Parent Issue has a text field call “Parent Type”. This filed got updated during the parent issue creation using “Copy Value From Other Field” post function.

Sub-task also has “Parent Type” field. I wish to tell the parent issue to update the sub-task “Parent Type” field, when Parent Issue is move from To Do to In Progress state.

Is it possible?

JIRA version 5.2.9

Thanks

I would say read through the various posts about the same topic in this forum - http://goo.gl/kpw9k4

thanks for the link. I can't find a answer for me setting it from parent to child during later updates.

Conditioned Workflow Functions for JIRA has the Update issues post function which can update one or more issues. In your case, config a JQL query to find the subtask to be updated and then set it's custom field from the parent value.

Thanks Renjith.

We're not using Script Runner plugin. We're using Misc and JIRA Suite plugin's. There is a post to copy parent issue data to sub-task creation, but I want to update Parent issue data to sub-task, when parent issue move from one state another workflow state.

Is it possible to automatically transition through sub-task workflow state, when parent issue move from one workflow state to another?

Hi Folks,

I'd like to copy the "mentioned-in" link (link to confluence page) from the parent-issue to the new sub-task. Do any of you have any suggestions on how to accomplish this?
