I would like to base a subtask workflow on the value of a parent's field.
The best I can do is to copy the parent field value to the subtask field and validate or condition on that.
Anyone know a way to do this that I haven't been able to think of?
Jobin, thanks for the suggestion.
I do the copy from parent on every transition. Yes, that is a weak approach. I'd love to find a way to push the parent field value to the subtask on any field change, but alas...
One of my givens is that I don't wan to "jailbreak" JIRA -- by which I mean I don't want to do any custom coding in the Java. That is a maintenance black hole I don't want to enter.
I probably have a stricter definition of "jailbreak." I don't want to have to support a custom plugin I wrote -- or more exactly, I don't want others to have to deal with it after I am gone.
I have found a paid plugin that supports this and will probably go that route.
