Hi - I have set up a new issue type (Sub Workstream) above Epic in the hierarchy.


Q1. There is a custom field whose value when set or updated in the Sub Workstream issue type must auto propagate to every  Epic created under the sub workstream issue type - even to the Epics that are in different project spaces from where the sub workstream issue type is.

Is this possible and how? 

Q2. Just as the Epic has a Create Issue option, can there be one for the Sub Workstream to create Epics? Currently my team creates an Epic, then updates parent link by searching for the sub workstream issue type - not ideal. If they forget to do so then the Epic goes missing in the reporting we have built.


Thank you

Hi @Archana Manjunatha 

Q1, If you have Scriptrunner you could create an automation on field edited trigger that will trigger the action Scriptrunner script that will go through each "child" issue and update them.

Q2, no Advanced Roadmap do not provide this feature, you could create a custom Panel using Fragment is you are using Scriptrunner that you could add on top of Child Issue. and have a button which triggers issue creation and link.
