Automation - Set "Epic Link" on Story to Epic created in the same automation



What I want to do is to change the Epic Link property of a Story created within an automation, to be the ID of a cloned epic in the same automation.

In below the automation is triggered manually, to Clone a given epic and then we fetch the issue.key of that Cloned Epic, place it in a variable and set the story with that variable. However, according to the logs the {{createdissueID}} is getting the correct ID but when setting Epic Link on the Story, it renders an empty log and the story is created without any Epic Link.

What am I doing wrong here and is it possible?

@Jakob Agelin 

You can use smart value 
{{#createdIssues}}{{key}}{{/}} for the epic link field. Please find the bellow screenshot for the same.


This was exactly what I was looking for. Difficult to find this answer anywhere.

HI Jakob,

Developer from Automation here.

I'm glad you solved your issue using createdIssues.

When using the "Most recently created issue" branch, the smart value of that newly created issue will be accessed as {{issue} for components in that branch. So in your case {{issue}} or {{issue.key}} should have worked. createdIssues is another way to access that key without using that branch.
