Trying to figure out how to create an automation rule that sets my sub-tasks component field, the same as whatever parent issue type I'm using has. 

This one of the many rules I've tried , am I close ?

Hi @Sierra - You'll need to change the Edit Issue action to copy from Parent

HI Sierra,

Please try like {{issue.parent.component/s}} . It works for me.

Thanks,

Saurabh

We've got an automation rule like this but it's breaking when the parent has multiple components.

I tried this trick and I get the same error.

Couldn't edit the Components field - the component doesn't exist
No fields or field values to edit for issues (could be due to some field values not existing in a given project):
Here's the Automation Rule:

Any advise?
