Automation for Moving Epics to In Progress/Done when Any/All children stories set to a status


I'm looking to create automation around setting Epic status to In progress when any 1 of it's children issues are set to in progress category type.

Also, I want to set the epic status to done when all of it's children issues are completed.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Figured it out

@JD Lobue 

You can try this automation rule using the following components.

  1. Trigger: Issue transitioned 

  2. Issue fields condition 

  3. Branch rule / related issues

  4. Related issues condition

  5. Transition issue


  • If your initial status is New then you should use New in place of To Do
  • In step 2, you could also say If issue type = Sub-tasks ; I did not use that because my epics have issue types that include but is not limited to sub-tasks

Here's a visual representation, do test and I hope that you can reach your goal :)
