I am looking for a method to update a parent issue custom field with data from a sub-task when I transition a sub-task. (perhaps some post-function?)
Each of our issues will have one sub-task that will be assigned to a different user from the owner of the parent issue.
Part of our workflow requires the owner of the sub-task to input some text into a custom field. When the sub-task is closed I would like to copy that text to a custom field on the parent issue.
(for reporting purposes - we only look at the parent issue, but want to see this text update captured on the sub-task)
I hope this makes sense and any suggestions are welcomed
There's now a very easy to configure way to keep fields for parents and sub-tasks in sync using Automation for JIRA!
(this example updates the description, in a sub-task when the parent changes, but you could reverse this too so a sub-task update, updates the parent)
