Auto assign stories to the same version as the Epic they are linked to?



I was wondering if there is a way for stories that are attached to an epic to adopt/auto-assign the fix version that the has been applied to the epic?

So far I have to add everything to the Fix-version manually.

Thank you,

You could use the solution provided by @Cristian Rosas [Tecnofor]. But if you want completely automate the process you could write a listener which would listen to the update event and then if the fix version field of an epic was updated, you could find in the listener all issues linked to the epic and change the fix version field for the issues. You could develop such a plugin or use add-ons like Power Scripts or Adaptivist Scriptrunner.

If you had Power Scripts you listener would look like this:

string [] keys = selectIssues("\"Epic Link\" = " + key);
for (string k in keys) {

You can find more info on Power Scripts here:

Hi Sameen,

You can bulk edit the fix version field with issues in the same project. Take note it will overwrite the value.

You will need to have all the permissions related to this action.
