Can I link sub-tasks when I create them?

Nick Menere Community Champion Oct 15, 2017

I want to create 3 sub-tasks - A, B & C so that A blocks B and B blocks C.

Am I able to do this?

This can be done by linking the sub-tasks when they are created to the "Most recently created issue" (in this case, the previous sub-task).

Note. You need to use the full "Create issue" action to create sub-tasks so that you can edit other fields.

You rule will look something like:
