Automation for JIRA - set resolution on Sub-task when parent transitions

We have an Automation for JIRA rule that transitions Sub-tasks to Resolved when the parent issue is transitioned to Resolved. We want to also set the Resolution field on the Sub-task to match the value selected in the parent task.

The rule is:

When "Issue transitioned" TO Resolved

  For Sub-tasks

    If Status is not one of (Resolved, Closed)

    Then Transition the issue to "Copy from Trigger Issues"


In the "Then" block I see I can choose other fields to set. I have tried selecting Resolution. I then have the option to set it to a specific value or "Copy From". When I choose "Copy From" I end up with "Copy Resolution from Current Issue". When that rule then runs, I get an error in the automation Audit Log thus:

Issue Condition: <checked green>

Transition issue: <checked green>

Edit issue:

Error editing issues

<IssueID> (Could not find valid 'id' or 'name' in resolution object. (resolution))


I am suspecting this is because the Resolution field is not on the Edit screens.


Is there a way to get the Sub-task Resolution field set to match the transitioning parent issue, without adding the Resolution field to the Edit screens?

Is there an option to copy resolution from trigger or parent issue? 

No, there is not.
